Summary
Nothing could have prepared Alice for the world she enters as editors and writers resign on the spot, refusing to work for the woman who wrote the scandalous bestseller Sex and the Single Girl, and confidential memos, article ideas, and cover designs keep finding their way into the wrong hands. When someone tries to pull Alice into a scheme to sabotage her boss, she is more determined than ever to help Helen succeed. While pressure mounts at the magazine and Alice struggles to make her way in New York, she quickly learns that in Helen Gurley Brown's world, a woman can demand to have it all.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "1965. Alice Weiss is a young, single, midwestern, wide-eyed newcomer to New York City. She dreams of being a photographer but takes the job she can get, secretary to Helen Gurley Brown, author of Sex and the Single Girl and struggling new editor-in-chief of the also struggling Cosmopolitan. Can Alice survive office treachery, personal tragedy, and relationship woes to help Brown's vision succeed? Will she find love and realize her dreams? Brown's now legendary, still controversial tenure was undeniably transformative. Cosmo went from having published O. Henry, Jack London, and Ida Tarbell to covering birth control, breast-fondling, and blow jobs. Rosen (Windy City Blues, 2017) knowingly treads rocky territory as she portrays Brown as a trailblazer and feminist icon. Where the book sparkles brightest is in Rosen's complete success in creating a soapy, small-town-girl-in-the-big-city story that includes sophisticated bad boys, designer clothes, and lots of smoking and day drinking. An ode to idealized 1960s New York, this champagne bubble of a novel takes the Mad Men approach to depicting single, twentysomething women.--Bethany Latham Copyright 2019 Booklist"
