Book DescriptionWhen Andrea first sets foot in the plush Manhattan offices of Runway she knows nothing. She's never heard of the magazine or anything about its feared and fawned-over editor, Miranda Priestly. But she's going to be Miranda's assistant; a job millions of girls would die for. A year later, she knows maybe a little too much. It's a sacking offence to wear anything lower than a three-inch heel to work although there is always a fresh pair of Manolo's for you in the cupboard. Or that Miranda believes Hermes scarves are disposable, and you must keep a lifetime supply on hand at all times, eight stone is fat. That you can charge cars, manicures, anything at all to the Runway account, but you must never, ever, leave your desk, or let Miranda's coffee get cold, most of all, Andrea knows that Miranda is a monster but also that this is her big break, and it has to be worth it in the end. Doesn't it?
