I suppose it is testament to its deliciousness that I spent much of today reading and finishing The Devil Wears Prada. Author Lauren Weisberger has done what half the population wishes it could do — nail a boss to the wall. I found it clever and insightful and an accurate portrayal of the 20-something mindset, especially one embarking on a career in New York.
Reading some of the interviews of Weisberger, it reminded me how fiction gives rise to so many questions in readers — Who is this character based on? Did this incident really happen? How much of this is autobiographical?
My own book certainly blurs the lines. (Wink. Wink.) What fun.
