"Married girls in New York these days put almost as much effort into losing husbands as they once did into finding them"
In 2004, Plum Sykes jet-setted to bestsellerdom with Bergdorf Blondes , a playful debut novel that introduced listeners to the glamorous world of Park Avenue Princesses. Now Sykes takes us into the world of Debutante Divorcees —high society's newly unwed heiress set.
Lauren Blount's life is beautifully arranged: she's very rich, very young, very thin, very pretty—and very, very divorced. She is the most reckless and glamorous of Manhattan's Debutante Divorcee set. Lauren captivates Sylvia Mortimer, the group's token newlywed. But while Lauren sets out on a morality-lite, orgasm-heavy "Make Out Challenge, " Sylvia discovers her marriage isn't exactly an Eternity ad—especially when the city's most notorious Husband Huntress zeros in on her spouse. Navigating a world of Divorce Showers and Power Christenings, Socialite Babies, Professional Friends, Gorgeous West Village Wives, and Un-Googleable Men, Sylvia fears her husband is straying and starts asking, as Lauren says, "Who needs a husband anyway?" With her delightful mix of charm, cheek, and satire, Sykes has written a second novel that promises to be every bit as beloved as her smash debut.
