“Kick your shoes off, get comfy, because once you start on this you won’t want to stop. Entertaining, witty, moving, all the elements of a modern classic with ’50s style thrown in for good measure!!” Ann

Rona Jaffe’s frank, scandalous and thrilling 1958 novel, The Best of Everything follows a group of young women as they negotiate office romances, workplace politics, broken engagements, tiny apartments, lecherous bosses, heartbreak and lasting friendship.

New York, 1952: Four young women have come to the city: to find love, to build their careers and to savour the indefinable optimism of the times. Caroline is the college graduate, determined to escape the typing pool and become an editor. April is the beautiful country girl with a penchant for disastrous romances. Aspiring actress Gregg is tangled in a dangerous love affair with a playwright; and divorcee Barbara writes about lipsticks by day and cares alone for her daughter by night.

Famously bedtime reading for Mad Men’s Don Draper, The Best of Everything portrays the lives and passions of these ambitious young women with intelligence, affection, and prose as sharp as a paper cut.
