Monica Nolan

Find your inner working girl at Wild Rose

Men aren’t the only ones who can wear tailored suits and negotiate investment deals on the golf course. And they aren’t the only ones who get a Girl Friday. Enter Lois Lenz, Lesbian Secretary. The title of Monica Nolan’s debut novel leaves little to the imagination, promising tales of lurid career-girl antics. You could read the book, but emulating the frisky Lenz is far more exciting. And while the words promise to be titillating at Nolan’s reading, the ensembles should be better. Thematic costumes are encouraged, with prizes awarded to the best working girls. So channel your inner Mary Tyler Moore or Maggie Gyllenhaal, stretch your typing fingers, and strut your best secretary. Don’t forget a bottle of clear nail polish should you get a dreaded run in your pantyhose.
