Review of LITTLE PINK SLIPS by Sally Koslow (see her website)
G. P. Putnam's Sons, April 2007
Magnolia Gold, executive editor of the venerable women's magazine Lady, has arranged her life pretty much the way she wants it.. She lives in the perfect Manhatten apartment, she has clothes and shoes to die for, and she adores her job ... until her ego-maniac publisher decides to revamp the magazine and turn it into Bebe, named after the magazine's new editor, an irreverant, loud-mouthed talk show host. Oprah or Martha she's not.
Magnolia is still the de facto editor, but in the unenviable position of having all the responsibility without the power. Bebe, with whom she quickly clashes, has the last say on everything and the woman seems intent on going down in flames and taking the magazine and its entire staff with it.
As if things couldn't get worse, Magnolia must tactfully fend off the unwanted advances of her publisher, then suffer the consequences as he systematically sets out to destroy her. But Magnolia doesn't go down without a fight, and sharing in her strategy and her cagey maneuvers to save herself and her loyal staff makes for entertaining reading indeed.
