Description

In The Right Address, Carrie Karasyov and Jill Kargman seared through the upper crust of New York’s glitterati with wicked glee. In their delicious new novel, Wolves in Chic Clothing, they train their merciless spotlight on the young princes and princesses poised to inherit Park Avenue. Julia, a hip, downtown salesgirl at Pelham’s jewelry store, finds her social life turned on its head when she is asked to deliver a necklace to the store’s young heiress, Lell Pelham, on Lell’s wedding day. Beguiled by Julia’s earnest cluelessness and her vintage-chic vibe, Lell and her gang adopt Julia, and “Eliza Doolittle” her into passing as the heiress to a family fortune, just for a laugh. Dazed by the whirlwind of trust funds, pedigrees, Cosmopolitans, and penthouses in her new world, Julia is unprepared for the ardent advances of Lell’s husband—or the vicious claws her new “friends” develop when they decide Julia is an ingrate, and demote her from society goddess to penniless cling-on with one well-timed editorial. Suddenly, she must return the borrowed couture clothes and try to remember who she was before the body snatching took place. Hilarious and completely addictive, Wolves in Chic Clothing is a modern-day rags-to-riches-and-back-again fairy tale that will leave fans stamping their Manolo Blahniks for more.

Review quote

Praise for The Right Address “It’s impossible to resist the charms of this modern Manhattan fairy tale.” — People “The right address for fun.” — The Atlanta Journal-Constitution “Offers playful insight into a world … as catty as it is rarefied.” — Vogue “… [Karasyov and Kargman] have fashioned an amusing ride out of the rituals and scandals, the big fake smiles and big real jewels, of the world in which they grew up.” — W Magazine “A winning novel … If you love society, scandal, and stories about the rich and the richer, look no further.” — Bookreporter.com “Succinct and snappy dialogue carry Melanie’s voyage through the social circles’ customary verbal skewering, dirt-dishing, and mud-throwing … The drama starts as the rich and famous are caught in acts of plagiarism, adultery, theft, and murder.” — The Deseret Morning News “Somewhere between Candace Bushnell and Danielle Steel...Getting the latest LV bag is hard.  Scoring a wealthy widower and his Park Avenue penthouse is harder.  The story of Melanie Sartomsky, stewardess turned socialite, who realizes her Upper East Side Barbie Dream House is (sniff) not everything she dreamed it would be.  Add catty, fatty socialites, delinquent but stylish co-eds, and heaps of financial debt.  Mix well and chill.” — Fashion Week Dailyshow more
