Reading: Débutante Divorcée by Plum Sykes
I read her first book Bergdorf Blondes over a decade ago when it was published in 2004, one of those mindless, funny chick lit books, entertaining and paints a funny and realistic socialite life given that Sykes moves in that New York socialite circle.
The author obviously comes from a family of privilege and moves in the circle and I am sure the satire and hysterics are true to a large extent.
Debutante Divorcee is her second novel and a breeze to read. Light hearted piece of reading, ridiculously shallow. Nonetheless, a great read in one sitting. A good book to take to the beach or finish in a sitting on your plane ride – it’s that kind of life you have to live vicariously through books, since afterall, most of us will never marry into or make it to the socialite circle.
