In between looking after four-year-old Grayer and running a thousand errands for Mrs X, his rich, uptight Manhattanite mother, Nan is trying to have a life. There's college, shopping, her friends, her cat George. And the gorgeous Harvard boy from the sixth floor ... But the X family's dramas keep intruding - visits from Mr X's predatory mistress, catastrophic family outings and, as a final straw, the case of the marriage-destroying panties. As Divorce looms, Nan realizes how attached she's become to the Xs' underloved son - and how nannying bas become more than just a job.
Funny, touching and true-to-life, The Nanny Diaries is a modern-day Mary Poppins story - with attitude.
