Sassy, funny, moving and smart, 'The Dirty Girls Social Club' is an unputdownable read.
This is the story of six very different women who met at college in Boston and swore to be friends for the rest of their lives. They call themselves the Dirty Girls Social Club. The only obvious thing they have in common is that they are all professional women and Latin American, but the real thing about them is that their lives tap into universal truths about women and sisterhood.
Lauren, a journalist, who is used to getting what she wants and kicking ass when she doesn't, except when it comes to men . . .
Sara, wife of a corporate lawyer, upstanding member of the Jewish community, one of the best interior designers and party givers around, and seriously uptight . . .
Elizabeth, the beautiful co-host for a TV morning show and former runway model with a secret which will test the bonds of their friendship to the limit . . .
Rebecca, owner and founder of the most popular Hispanic woman's magazine in the market; nobody works the room like she does . . .
Amber, a rock singer waiting for her first big break, the spiritual one of the group . . .
And then there is Usnavys, a big gal who is as showy as Liberace; no-one would guess, meeting her for the first time in her full-length white fur coat with the price tag still on the inside, that she is Vice President for Public Affairs for the United Way of Massachusetts.
They all feel perfectly licensed to tell each other what do and how to live their lives, and boy do they ever.
