I briefly mentioned this book in the links a while back, but that didn’t seem like quite enough attention to pay to something so great: my pal Jennifer Romolini is getting a ton of good press for Weird in a World That’s Not, and it is well-deserved (and I do not just say that because I appear prominently—and unnamed—in her chapter about working at a big-time fashion magazine). Anyone who’s interested in reading the story of one woman’s anything-but-straight path to the top of her field, written in a hilarious and achingly human voice—will want to pick this up. By the end, you’ll wish you were her friend, and I’m so happy I am.
It sounds good!
One book I wish I had read sooner was Lynda Obst’s “Hello, He Lied.” I learned from it and it was a good read.
Got it based on your recommendation, read it already. And yes, I do wish she was my friend, or even my co-worker. And the chapter that offers a glimpse into working at Lucky was perfect, exactly as I would imagine (and you came off sounding like a badass cool boss lady). Thanks for sharing.
