Winter Reading

I didn't think that I would like this book but I enjoyed it.  Alexandra Lebenthal, ex-bond babe (and I don't mean the films, I mean muni bonds), socialite and New York Social Diary editor, weaves a clever story about trials and tribulations of Wall Street wives as they deal with private school admissions, cheating hedge fund husbands and the collapse of Lehman Brothers.  The tidy ending is certainly contrived but the book is worth reading for the description of the characters alone.

Next on my list of books...

They look good. I'm planning on some lighthearted reading for January it's far too dull and gloomy in London for anything too serious - India Knight's new book Comfort and Joy, the new Jilly Cooper, Issy Blow's biog that I've not finished and Keith Richards xx

Unbroken is already on my list. The first book sounds like a good January romp.
