Here, she tells us about the challenges of writing it - from finding the time, to drawing the characters - and reveals that it may be the first of many. It's daunting now that it's being published - more so than actually doing it.

Very little i can say about this book, I didnt particularly enjoy it, nor can i pick out much criticism either, It was a bit underwhelming. I detested the character of Kendra,I found her self pitying and sulky, while sals character was basically a drunk and nothing else, the back cover said she was fighting her personal demons but other than her.

Hurus
I found the book an engaging read. Ms. Shulman has a terrific eye for details; not just about the clothes, eateries and music of the 1980s London, but also the gestures and actions that eloquently evoke certain social types. Unlike the broad brushstroke categorisations in other "girlfriends" novels, the characters here are more subtly and cleverly conjured. For example, I was reminded of sightings in a similar milieu by the art books, carefully selected and presented to reflect the owners' good taste, on the coffee table at Kendra's parents' house. Just the other day I guiltily thought of Annie's mum when I was inspecting the silverware set for a dinner party. Sal, Annie and Kendra are realistic heroines while their young victories and disappointments felt genuine, if not grippingly dramatic. Yes this is chick lit, but it's not the sort of escapist fantasies with incredible but thrilling plots that one finishes in a couple of hours on the beach. Escapist fantasies serve a wonderful purpose in our stressful lives, but this book would not suit if that's the particular kind you're in the mood for.

I could not find a single character to connect with here. And she completely failed to bring to life any of the 80s. (note to chroniclers of a previous age: sticking in random song titles isnt a substitute for more incisive writing.) I am actually a huge fan of Ms. Schuman as an editor of Vogue and think she should stick to what she does so well.

I rarely read chic lit but am a fan of the author and British Vogue. I'm not sure what the naysayers here expected, but I found this perfect reading on a long flight I just took. A fun and compelling snapshot of '80s London with convincing characters. Middle-class English women finding their way in the world after graduating and wondering if they'll be in each other's lives for the long haul gives a lot for readers to identify with. Not every book has to have an unconventional twist, though if you require "outsiders" there is a lesbian love story in this one. This was simply an effective, enjoyable and well-written story. Well done, Ms. Shulman!
