Read full description of the books:
This is a great book and I enjoyed it very much.
Cover is misleading, this book is not about a wannabe-executive with stiletto heels but it’s about adorable cute twenty something Nan Cloutier who has a temp job posing as Cindy-Lou at the Merrier-Iverson Department Store in New York City .
This is not a general rule but when you have a happy childhood, a relatively decent attitude in high school, great parents who give you tons of freedom and make sure you can have an average good time (financially), your IQ is right where it should be, you kind of have expectations that after school great things will happen.
Now in my late twenties I finally got rid of lots of misconceptions regarding what is great thing and what is not, the definition of being successful and all that. Like Nan I would love to belong to an Elizabethan Failure Society as I find it extremely appealing:
“To explain what an Elizabethan Failure is,” he began, “let us contrast it first with what may appear to be its natural opposite: the Elizabethan Success. Take, for example, that all-around Renaissance man, Sir Philip Sydney.”
“Sydney was the very embodiment of grace, courtesy, and heroic virtue, the fine flower and ornament of the English renaissance. He was also a scholar, a poet, and a man of action, who died young in battle. Legend has it that in his last moments he insisted that the cup of water offered him should be given instead to a dying soldier nearby. Such is an Elizabethan Success.”
“An Elizabethan Failure, on the other hand, is a sprightly offshoot whose contrariety from an Elizabethan Success is simply a degree of artful realization. The Elizabethan Failure writes poetry, drama, and letters—yes—but he doubtless will never know the joyful stamp of a printer’s press. The Elizabethan Failure may engage in battle, but the blow that fells him will most likely be an accidental one. And the cup of water so gallantly offered will, at the last moment, slip from his weak grasp, thus rendering two people thirsty instead of one.”
If you can relate to this poetic you will probably like Calendar Girl, Nan and the delightful love story that she develops with Colm Iverson, on a higher level you can probably relate to me and you should keep reading my reviews .

Read information about the authorAlso published as Naomi Nash
Naomi Neale, a pseudonym for Vance Briceland, is one of the few men writing in the romance genre. He writes stories aimed at young women, in the subgenre sometimes called "chick lit," and novels for teenage girls as Naomi Nash. "Many people tend to be surprised that I don't mind writing for what's perceived as a female-oriented genre," Neale told Derrick Sobodash in an interview for the Royal Oak, Michigan, Oakland Press. Neale further explained to Sobodash: "I've always enjoyed stories with romantic components to them." His background figures into his writing to some extent. He is the son of two historians, whom he considers "storytellers," he told Sobodash. He also has a sympathy for outsiders and has done extensive volunteer work with youths, which has given him "insight into the mind of a teenage girl," noted Debra Pascoe in a profile of Neale for the online publication Life@Wayne at Wayne State University, where he works as an administrator.
