Mad Men meets The Devil Wears Prada as
Renée Rosen draws readers into the glamorous New York City
of 1965 and Cosmopolitan magazine, where a brazen new
editor-in-chief—Helen Gurley Brown—shocks America and saves
a dying publication by daring to talk to women about all
New York City is filled with opportunities for single girls
like Alice Weiss, who leaves her small midwestern town to
chase her big-city dreams and unexpectedly lands the job of
a lifetime working for the first female editor-in-chief of
Cosmopolitan magazine, Helen Gurley Brown.
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.
