Review of: The Best of Everything by Rona Jaffe

5 out of 5 stars

This book was originally published in 1958. It was recently given new life and is still so relevant today. I love this book on so many levels. Makes it into my all time favorites list.  A 1950s Devil Wears Prada meets Sex an the City and Casablanca. It’s gutsy, truthful, and relevant. Some exquisitely written passages that gave me chills.

-“You’ll buy a drink and you’ll take it outside on the terrace…And you’ll be looking out at the beautiful tropical night and listening to music from inside the bar, and you’ll sip at your drink, and then you’ll think of me, and you’ll feel pleasantly sad.”

-“He took her hand and led her to the mirror that hung over her dresser and he stood there behind her, his arms crossed over her waist in front, resting his chin on the top of her head.”

I will recommend this book everytime. Makes it into my top 5 favorite books.
