Description

Plum Sykes's beguiling debut welcomes listeners to the glamorous world of Park Avenue Princesses. With enormous wit and an insider's eye, Sykes captures the nuances of the rich and spoiled in a heartwarming social satire, featuring a loveable "champagne bubble of a girl" who's just looking for love (and maybe the perfect pair of Chloe jeans).

Professional reviews

"Welcome to the world of the PAPs--Park Avenue Princesses--wealthy fashionistas in search of the perfect accessory: a PH (Prospective Husband). Our narrator, referred to only as "moi," is a British expatriot whose friendship with a genuine Bergdorf and glamorous job as a fashion writer give her sufficient cachet for clique membership. Voiced by Charlotte Parry, the protagonist is a comic gem--empty-headed, big-hearted, and looking for love. Parry's got that dry British way with American accents, so the supporting characters--the "13-day blondes" and the protagonist's first PH, especially--are done well, too. The novel itself is a little dated (by references to the late Carolyn Bessette Kennedy and to "Brad and Jen," most notably), but this recording makes that excusable. C.E.W.
