Description

“I’m crazy about Bond Girl. Erin Duffy is a fresh, funny, and fabulous new voice.”
—Adriana Trigiani, author of Brava, Valentine
 
The Devil Wears Prada meets Wall Street in Bond Girl—a hilarious, fast–paced race through the jungle of high finance in four–inch heels. An author who spent ten years working on Wall Street, Erin Duffy has parlayed her stock market savvy into a fresh, hip, funny, and sexy novel about a bright, young, newly minted B-school graduate’s rise at one of the Street’s most prestigious brokerage firms—only to confront the possible destruction of her dreams in the infamous 2008 financial bust. Bond Girl is a blue chip hoot for anyone who loves smart and fun contemporary woman’s fiction.

        "I'm crazy about Bond Girl. Erin Duffy is a fresh, funny, and fabulous new voice in literature....Great story. Delicious debut." — Adriana Trigiani, author of Lucia, Lucia and Brava, Valentine

        "Despite financial details that may make your head spin and a workplace that will make your stomach churn, Duffy's fresh take on the single-in-the-city tale does a terrific job of reviving chick lit (not every girl works in publishing or PR, after all)." — Library Journal (starred review)

        "A compelling, fun read." — Kirkus on BOND GIRL

        "Duffy's first novel is a sharp, witty look at the intricacies of the trading floor and the people who populate it. The writing is clever and articulate, and Alex's story of personal growth makes her a sympathetic, likable heroine...an entertaining and timely read." — Booklist on BOND GIRL

        "Bond Girl is a sparkling debut, smart and snappy but never weighed down by financial terminology. Who knew Wall Street could be this much fun? A-" — Entertainment Weekly on BOND GIRL

        "Writing with an addictively acerbic sense of humor, Duffy gives readers a sassy new heroine and an unforgettable tour of financial trading." — Chicago Tribune

        "Told in first person in Alex's voice — and what an appealing voice it is, one that makes Alex likable from the first page — "Bond Girl" is a smartly written comic novel that's great fun to read." — Richmond Times-Dispatch

        "If you're looking for a great weekend retreat or a great book for the beach, look for this one. For any woman who's ever had a love-hate-detest relationship with a job Bond Girl is truly perfect." — Wisconsin Rapids Tribune on BOND GIRL

        "Bond Girl is a witty and very racy...Trust me, you won't be bored with this Wall Street story." — Washington Post

        October 31, 2011
        Despite promising insider secrets about what really happens at a Wall Street firm, Duffy’s debut crashes as fast as the stock market did. Alex Garrett, a recent college graduate who began her Wall Street career in 2006, dreams of fast-talking days on the trading floor. Instead, she sits on a folding chair at a government bond desk, fetches ridiculously large takeout orders, and serves as a doormat for her colleagues, as well as the office ladies’ man she dates. While the peculiar tasks Alex is forced to fulfill with a “yes, sir” attitude, and the crazy tales of work life pique the reader’s curiosity, these stories quickly become boring. Unfortunately, Duffy’s attempt to sell her trade secrets doesn’t pan out, and it’s hard to sustain interest by the time she gets to the number one thing you’ll want to know about working on “the Street.”
