Nannies Get Another Shot

When Nanny Diaries authors’ latest effort was rejected by their publisher, staff writers everywhere had a field day (see here, for example.) In the blogosphere, too, the Nannies had few friends. Unfortunately, it turns out the Nannies’ comeupance might have to wait.

Nanny Diaries co-authors Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus’s CITIZEN GIRL, originally under contract to Random House before the house rejected it, about “the employment odyssey of an ambitious woman confronting what it is to be young and female in the New Economy,” to Brenda Copeland at Atria, for publication in fall 2004, in what others say is a very good deal, by Suzanne Gluck at William Morris (NA).
