Nine Women, One Dress: A Novel (Paperback)
Usually Available in 1-5 Days
A delightful summer read for all you fashionistas out there. Every season there is an 'IT' dress, determined by those steely critics viewing a couture collection from the front row. This is the story of one of these dresses told from the perspective of nine very different men and women. You’ll love the master pattern maker in his final year of production and sympathize with the fresh face runway model who presents the dress to the world. It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s funny, and a bit touching besides. Just the book to take to the beach or to anticipate Fashion Week, whichever you prefer.— From Susan's Picks
Natalie is a Bloomingdale’s salesgirl mooning over her ex-boyfriend; Felicia has been quietly in love with her boss for seventeen years; and Andie is a cynical private detective who specializes in cheating husbands.
For these three women, as well as many others—a young model fresh from Alabama, a Hollywood star making her Broadway debut, an unemployed Brown grad who’s been faking a fabulous life on social media—everything is about to change . . . and all thanks to the power of one perfect little black dress.
