Last Night at Chateau Marmont By Lauren Weisberger

Lauren Weisberger is coming out with a new book! Weisberger is best known for The Devil Wears Prada, Everyone Worth Knowing, and Chasing Harry Winston.  I'm excited that while promoting her newest book she will be stopping in Houston!  I love the cover and it sounds like a fun read.  Do you enjoy Chicklit?  Will this make it on to your to read list?

 Last Night at Chateau Marmont By Lauren Weisberger
Publication date: August 17, 2010

Brooke loved reading the dishy celebrity gossip rag Last Night. That is, until her marriage became a weekly headline.
Brooke was drawn to the soulful, enigmatic Julian Alter the very first time she heard him perform "Hallelujah" at a dark East Village dive bar.
Now five years married, Brooke balances two jobs—as a nutritionist at NYU Hospital and as a consultant to an Upper East Side girls' school, where privilege gone wrong and disordered eating run rampant—in order to help support her husband's dream of making it in the music world.
Things are looking up when after years of playing Manhattan clubs and toiling as an A&R intern, Julian finally gets signed by Sony. Although no one's promising that the album will ever hit the airwaves, Julian is still dedicated to logging in long hours at the recording studio. All that changes after Julian is asked to perform on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno—and is catapulted to stardom, literally overnight. Amazing opportunities begin popping up almost daily—a new designer wardrobe, a tour with Maroon 5, even a Grammy performance.
At first the newfound fame is fun—who wouldn't want to stay at the Chateau Marmont or visit the set of one of television's hottest shows? Yet it seems that Brooke's sweet husband—the man who can't handle hot showers and wears socks to bed—is increasingly absent, even on those rare nights they're home together. When rumors about Brooke and Julian swirl in the tabloid magazines, she begins to question the truth of her marriage and is forced to finally come to terms with what she thinks she wants—and what she actually needs.

  1. Cool. I haven't heard of this one. Is it weird that I feel bad for her hubby already? ;)

  2. Juju: Are you back yet? I'm not sure I feel bad for the hubs if he's the one who's gone and caught up in the tabloids but who knows where the book will go. Sounds interesting :)

  3. Sounds interesting, just have to remember not to compare it to Devil Wears Prada or I may be disappointed.
