Her first job out of college is one that any young woman would give her right arm to have: assistant to the famous, powerful, legendary, magnificent Miranda Priestly, editor of Runway magazine and doyenne of international fashion. But as Andrea Sachs finds herself less than an errand girl who is abused verbally and constantly at the demand of this arrogant, unfeeling woman, we are treated to the spectacle of the high-fashion world through the reading talent of Bernadette Dunne. She imparts the frenzy of cell phone slaves, the embarrassment of one reprimanded in public, and the exhaustion of being on call incessantly. In a clear voice she delights in the silliness of the industry while interpreting the relationships with compassion. She does the author a fine service. J.P.
