A Devil Wears Prada style tale from a far more glamorous era In The Mink by Anne Scott-James is a semi-autobiographical tale of a fashion assistant’s journey through the magazine industry during the 1930s. Prior to penning the novel Scott-James was an editor at both Harper’s Bazaar and British Vogue, while In The Mink‘s heroine Elizabeth Gaskell works for the fabulously titled Venus magazine. “A vastly amusing and scintillating behind-the-scenes story of the fascinating world of fashion magazines as told by Elizabeth Gaskell, an editor of the London edition of the American-owned Venus. . . . In The Mink is a frank picture of a business which has a cafe society atmosphere and which is conducted almost entirely by women in the name of sex appeal. . . . Whether it is Bond Street, or the home office in New York, or the fashion shows in Paris it is all very chic and smart. . . . Full of razor-sharp remarks, In The Mink is as revealing as a sheer negligee.” Visit Amazon.com to Find a Copy Now.
