Author(s): Lauren Weisberger
The classic bestseller - over a million copies sold worldwide High fashion, low cunning - and the boss from hell When Andrea first sets foot in the plush Manhattan offices of Runway she knows nothing. She's never heard of the world's most fashionable magazine, or its feared and fawned-over editor, Miranda Priestly - her new boss. A year later, she knows altogether too much: That it's a sacking offence to wear anything lower than a three-inch heel to work. That you can charge cars, manicures, anything at all to the Runway account, but you must never, ever, leave your desk, or let Miranda's coffee get cold. And that at 3 a.m. on a Sunday, when your boyfriend's dumping you because you're always at work, if Miranda phones, you jump. But this is Andrea's big break - it's going to be worth it in the end. Isn't it?
Winner of British Book Awards: TV & Film Book of the Year 2007.

GUARDIAN from the media coverage on acquisition: 'Lauren Weisberger! recently sold the rights to a first novel called The Devil Wears Prada about the glamorous but demeaning life of an editorial assistant. At a time when The Nanny Diaries, a gossipy roman a clef, is a bestseller, Ms Weisberger's proposal drew bids from half a dozen publishers!.' New York Times May 2002 'Fashionistas will be paying attention to The Devil Wears Prada.' Independent on Sunday July 2002
