The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger

The Devil Wears Prada

Lauren Weisberger

If you want to own a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes, you'll love the outlandish descriptions of the magazine fashion industry depicted throughout this novel. However be warned, if you too have worked for a boss that was a complete bitch this read may bring back all those anxiety panic attacks and give you a nervous twitch.

Extract

Miranda managed not to address me for nearly an hour, but after that she was off and running. Even though I was standing in the same room she was, she called my cell phone to request a Pellegrino. From that moment on, the phone rang in ten - to twelve-minute increments, each request sending another shock of pain directly to my head.
