New book from Devil Wears Prada author

Who could forget the Devil Wears Prada? Meryl Streep sashaying and pursuing her lips in a way guaranteed to make your whole body quiver with inferiority. I am sure my smart and knowledgeable readers will know that before the movie came the book from Lauren Weisberger and was rumoured to be about her experiences working with notorious Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

As well as Devil Wears Prada (the book is quite different from the movie by the way) Lauren has written several other books and her latest – Last Night at Chateau Marmont – has just been announced for an Aussie release date of September 1.

As someone who has read all her books (the last few before they were published) I am very, very excited about this release. I have already added this to my birthday wish list (October in case anyone was wondering).

If you haven’t read any of Lauren’s books yet definitely grab Everyone Worth Knowing definitely my favourite. It goes inside the insane world of high-profile PR.

About her new book:
Two college sweethearts are living a happy, rather ordinary life in New York but there’s a slight twist — she’s the breadwinner, supporting her musician boyfriend. Until the tables are turned when he’s discovered by a Sony exec and their worlds are turned upside down.

Soon they are holidaying in the Hamptons, adorning the cover of Vanity Fair and attending every glitzy party in town — all the while his career is reaching new, dizzying heights. 

But the trappings of this elite lifestyle mean our heroine must face the wrath of the US press.

One final note – I also discovered Lauren is also on blogspot! Check out her blog at


  1. Hello there. :)
    We met on Lauren's blog. I'm really excited about her new book coming up, so looking forward to it! I live in Toronto, and I just found out she comes in Toronto to sign her new book on August 24. My excitement about this has no limits. :) I will definitely be there to meet her and have a signed book by her.

  2. Besides my blog, I also write for various online publications. Here's a page of mine where I write about books, if you want to have a look. I also wrote about Lauren's new book.

    I find we have a lot in common, I'm glad I discovered your blog.

    Sincerely, Victoria.
