In The Mink

Anne Scott-James
In The Mink
New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., 1952 (stated first edition)
Fictionalized memoir by an actual former editor on British Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. “A vastly amusing and scintillating behind-the-scenes story of the fascinating world of fashion magazines as told by Elizabeth Gaskell, an editor of the London edition of the American-owned Venus. . . . In The Mink is a frank picture of a business which has a cafe society atmosphere and which is conducted almost entirely by women in the name of sex appeal. . . . Whether it is Bond Street, or the home office in New York, or the fashion shows in Paris it is all very chic and smart. . . . Full of razor-sharp remarks, In The Mink is as revealing as a sheer negligee.
