Uh, did someone say the author of The Devil Wears Prada (Laura Weisberger) has a new book out called Last Night at Chateau Marmont?? If I had a dime for every time one of my friends said or someone at the Chateau said – “I should totally write a book about this place” … but never does.
After reading Publishers Weekly’s review, it sounds like this book is about people who move to L.A. and haven’t a clue (read: F.O.B.s) rather than people who just naturally hang out at Chateau and are in the scene. Who wants yet another book about a wannabe who gottobe? Sounds like this book (tho I LOVED Devil) is just trading on a good name. Boo already. The Chateau is not for gawking; its for ordering spaghetti bolognese and smoking on patios (illegal in L.A. now everywhere except here).
