Product description

Amazon Review

The Nanny Diaries is an absolutely addictive peek into the utterly weird world of child-rearing in the upper reaches of Manhattan's social strata. Cowritten by two former nannies, Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, the novel follows the adventures of the aptly named Nan as she negotiates the Byzantine byways of working for Mrs X, a Park Avenue mommy. Nan's four-year-old charge, the hilariously named Grayer (his pals include Josephina, Christabelle, Brandford, and Darwin) is a genuinely good sort. He can't help it if his mother has scheduled him for every activity known to the Upper East Side, including ice-skating, French lessons, and a Mommy and Me group largely attended by nannies. What makes the book so impossible to put down is the suspense of finding out what the unbelievably inconsiderate Mrs X will demand of Nan next. One pictures the two authors having the last hearty laugh on their former employers. --Claire Dederer

Review

"A national phenomenon." -"Newsweek""" "Diabolically funny." "-The New York Times" "[Nanny is] Mary Poppins channeling Dorothy Parker." -"Time""" "Impossible to put down." -"Vogue" "McLaughlin and Kraus...[have a] carefully calibrated sense of compassion and delicious sense of the absurd." -"Entertainment Weekly"
