Davis & Dash is the epitome of Manhattan's glittering publishing scene, a world of multimillion-dollar advances and Champagne publication parties. But as the do-or-die fall season approaches, D&D is scrambling to outmaneuver its competitors. Five authors are slotted for publication on their coveted fall list - but there will be only one bestseller.
Interweaving the tales of five desperate authors with a scathing and hilarious inside look at the publishing world, Olivia Goldsmith offers her most mischievous and provocative novel since The First Wives Club.

At the beginning I thought this book was going to be a collection of individual short stories (which I don't care much for). But as I kept on reading, all the different characters began converging on a principal theme. I really enjoyed this book and the way it trully protrayed the way very different people think, act, and are.
