To everyone who's anyone in New York, Victory Ford, Wendy Healy and Nico O'Neilly are riding high, the beautiful faces of success in the city. Victory is the hottest new designer on the block; Wendy is President of Parador Pictures with a sure-fire hit in production and three gorgeous children; and Nico is the editor of Bonfire magazine, the city's style bible. To the outside world they've hit their prime.
The trouble is, from where Victory, Wendy and Nico are standing things don't look quite that way. Nico is fitting in guilty extramarital sex with an underwear model, Victory's last collection bombed and Wendy's twelve-year marriage to her metrosexual househusband is in freefall. Fierce, funny, and flawed, Candace Bushnell's new heroines are also irresistible, and as she follows them through the minefield of work, love and life at the top she gives us a hugely entertaining lesson on how to stay ahead and keep laughing in the toughest town on the planet.
Welcome to their world - the Lipstick Jungle.
