Cover of: The Best of Everything | Rona Jaffe

About the Book

Before Valley of the Dolls and Sex in the City, there was The Best of Everything—the iconic novel of ambitious career girls in New York City.

When it was first published in 1958, Rona Jaffe’s debut novel electrified readers who saw themselves reflected in its story of five young employees of a New York publishing company. There’s Ivy League Caroline, who dreams of graduating from the typing pool to an editor’s office; naive country girl April, who within months of hitting town reinvents herself as the woman every man wants on his arm; Gregg, the free-spirited actress with a secret yearning for domesticity. Now a classic, and as page-turning as when it first came out, The Best of Everything portrays their lives and passions with intelligence, affection, and prose as sharp as a paper cut.
