The Best of Everything by Rona Jaffe | Book Snob

S ome things never change, and the way of life of the young woman trying to make it on her own in a big city is, perhaps, one of them. In , I came to London to work as a trainee on a Sunday newspaper. It was a peculiarly febrile time. My job was tough, the city was tough, and I had alarmingly little money on which to live. But it was also exciting. Anything could have happened, and who cared if I had to live on thin air!

The Best of Everything by Rona Jaffe: the original Sex and the City

I had seen it mentioned and had been meaning to read it, so I promised Jane I would get hold of it. What was inside? The novel centres around the lives of four girls; Caroline, April, Gregg and Barbara. All of the girls are in their very early twenties, college graduates and eager to get ahead in the world. Caroline, the most ambitious, is working hard towards becoming an editor. April, the most innocent, is desperate to find love.

The Best of Everything

Thank you! Caroline Bender, just graduated from Radcliffe and still suffering from being jilted by her fiance, takes a job as a typist at a publishing company in New York. Two other girls start there the same week--Gregg a young out-of-work actress and April, fresh from Colorado--naive and beautiful. This is the story of three years in their lives with side excursions into the careers of other and more typical working girls. Caroline by talent and shrewdness rises to an editorial position, has a brief office romance with a married man, dates a worthy young lawyer who wishes to marry her and then throws everything aside when her first love returns.
