The Best of Everything

Rona Jaffe's novel The Best of Everything may have been written in 1958, but its astute portrayal of the joy and grit of New York life rings true even 50 years later. The five very realistic main characters, all young women seeking success in the worlds of publishing and the theater, endure cramped apartments, drunken co-workers, August heat, and miserable blind dates, just like the one you were on last weekend. Some things never change.
