Shaking Her Assets by Robin Epstein, Renee Kaplan
It was a day like any other in Gotham, until...
In the interest of cost-cutting, editorial work at the high-end housewares tome The Byzantium Catalog has been "redistributed," thereby relieving Rachel Chambers of her duties. Meanwhile, the evil "other woman" relieves Rachel of her boyfriend of two years.
But all is not lost. A business idea that starts off as a joke between Rachel and her friend starts to take off. And suddenly her misadventures take on a life of their own when the art director at her temp job turns her into a comic-book superhero. Suddenly Rachel is taking the New York social scene by storm-remorselessly tossing aside losers and nay-sayers in her never-ending quest for Success. And her man-eating alter-ego has got her believing that she just might be able to pull this off in real life...though maybe without the cone-shaped bra.
