Baker & Taylor
In an irreverent portrait of the publishing world, five authors and their books--all handled by big-time New York City publishing house Davis and Dash--compete for a position on the New York Times bestseller list

At Davis & Dash, one of New York's most prestigious publishing houses, five new authors will be published--but only one of them will be a bestseller. They have worked long and hard to write their novels of romance and murder, drama and love. But the story behind the stories is even more exciting. And the vicious competition to get the right agent, the perfect editor, and the choice spot on the bestseller list must be seen to be believed.

Master novelist Olivia Goldsmith, bestselling author of The First Wives Club and Marrying Mom, takes a scathing and hilarious inside look at the deviously cutthroat world of publishing. She pierces egos, produces the dish, and punctures more than a few careers in this one-of-a-kind novel where dreams come true and writing is its own reward.

couldn't get into it. Only read a chapter

At the beginning I thought this book was going to be a collection of individual short stories (which I don't care much for). But as I kept on reading, all the different characters began converging on a principal theme. I really enjoyed this book and the way it trully protrayed the way very different people think, act, and are.
