"Sixty years later, Jaffe's classic still strikes a chord, this time eerily prescient regarding so many of the circumstances surrounding sexual harassment that paved the way toward the #MeToo movement." -Buzzfeed When Rona Jaffe's superb page-turner was first published in 1958, it changed contemporary fiction forever. Some readers were shocked, but millions more were electrified when they saw themselves reflected in its story of five young employees of a New York publishing company. Almost sixty years later, The Best of Everything remains touchingly--and sometimes hilariously--true to the personal and professional struggles women face in the city. There's Ivy League Caroline, who dreams of graduating from the typing pool to an editor's office; na ve country girl April, who within months of hitting town reinvents herself as the woman every man wants on his arm; and Gregg, the free-spirited actress with a secret yearning for domesticity. Jaffe follows their adventures with intelligence, sympathy, and prose as sharp as a paper cut.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Rona JaffePublisher: Penguin BooksPublished: 05/31/2005ISBN: 9780143035299Pages: 448Weight: 0.81lbsSize: 8.02h x 5.42w x 0.95dReview Citations: Ingram Advance 06/01/2005 pg. 72New Yorker (The) 01/24/2011 pg. 78
