Críticas

I loved this book about Alice ("Ali") who moves to New York City to follow her dream of becoming a "world-renowned photographer, but she becomes the assistant of Helen Gurley Brown, who has just taken over as new editor in chief of the magazine. The story is fiction, but the author's note at the end indicates which parts actually happened, and what (and who) she has fictionalized.
So many elements come together: Brown's struggles with the "brass", what it was like for women trying to make a name for themselves in the 60s, how women's roles were changing, as well as things specific to Ali, who is still mourning the death of her mother years ago, and trying to reconnect to her father, who is remarried.
There's even a bit of a mystery about who may be sabotaging Brown.
Good storylines, interesting characters, well written. Maybe wraps up a little too neatly.

Well researched historical fiction of the 1950’s, Chicago, a strong female character who, though working in a traditionally male profession (journalism) before it was savvy or even acceptable, is living her dream, while retaining her femininity –what’s not to love? I’ll have to read Renee’s earlier books now!

Very cute, the 1965 setting really freshened up the overdone working for a demanding editor at a magazine storyline.

This was a very engaging read. The time period and the landscape, not the mention the characters were well drawn.
