Bright Young Things

(1986)
A novel by

 
A novel of London in the twenties. The place is London, the time, the 1920s - the era of flappers, silent movie stars, ex-servicemen looking for work, and young women just emancipated enough to make their lives confusing. Two such young women - who meet at an advertising agency where they both find work - are the heroines of 'Bright Young Things'. Helen Redmaine, who is from a 'good' family, with impeccable bloodlines - but no money - falls unexpectedly in love with a married man whose wife will not divorce him. And Boots, Helen's unlikely friend, is a beautiful and ambitious Cockney girl who is determined to disguise her working-class origins and find herself a rich husband. Then there is Willie, an unscrupulous rogue who will stop at nothing to further his own ends, and whose liking for women nearly proves his downfall. One of these women is June, the plain, often overlooked daughter of a rich man, who goes to unexpected lengths to have her own way. Told with all of the charm that made Josephine Edgar the winner of Britain's prize for the best romantic novel of the year in 1980, 'Bright Young Things' is a spell binding story of youth, love and ambition at a time when the old values had suddenly turned upside down.
