Am I Right Ladies? Hell Is Bikini Season

Am I Right Ladies? Hell Is Bikini Season

Well, we did it, girls. We made it through another brutal winter holed up alone in our apartments with our DVR, our cat and a case of Snickers. And unless we all get raptured this weekend, summer is right around the corner. Of course, nice warm weather also means exposed arms, buckets of back sweat, humidity-induced frizz and… bathing suits.

Even though Eighteen Acres:A Novel is a work of fiction (it says novel, see?), from the pieces we’ve read* Nicole’s protagonist Melanie is much like Nicole herself: she works at the White House, is a woman in a workplace full of men, and has an “insider view” to the politics of the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. She also really, really likes to talk about her accessories. We’ve picked several passages of the book, and compared them to portions of Lauren Weisberger‘s The Devil Wears Prada, a comparable parable about working for an Anna Wintour stand-in at a large magazine.
