Just out of college, with aspirations to be a writer, Andrea lands an ill-defined job as assistant to the editor of RUNWAY magazine--Miranda Priestly (rhymes with beastly). Soon Andrea is so caught up with Miranda's outrageous errands (pick up her dog, her car, her just-so lunch) and the world of fashion that she neglects her boyfriend and her needy roommate. Rachel Leigh Cook reads this first-person nightmare at a rapid pace, capturing Andrea's naïveté and skewering the city weirdos she encounters. But it's her performance of the insipid and demanding "boss from hell" that will stick with you. Eventually Andrea tells the devil off but not before you've had a highly entertaining listen. J.B.G.
