From the NY Times profile of “fashion murder mystery” writer Kate White:
The problem with revenge, of course, is that it is hard to throw your pie and have it, too. Will anyone care, for instance, when the author of “The Devil Wears Prada,” the tell-all roman Ã clef patterned on Anna Wintour of Vogue, publishes a fully fictional novel, “Everyone Worth Knowing,” this fall?
Not so Kate White, who has been clever enough to have it both ways. As the editor of Cosmopolitan, which now has more than 50 editions (Cosmo Serbia, Cosmo Estonia and Cosmo Kenya are the latest), Ms. White might be described as a leader of the free world.
That’s a mighty big might.
