How long does it take to go from It Girl to on the dole?
TV producer Rebecca Cole has seen better days. Like the day her cartoon creation, Esme, made her a hit and scored her a promotion. That was a good day. But now that her roommate has decided to heed her therapist and appreciate the simpler things in life -- outside of New York City -- and a corporate takeover at her network has left Rebecca jobless, this food snob has to find a way to afford her rent and her penchant for fine dining. Oh, and she really should start saying no to the break-up sex with her ex.
Surely Rebecca will be able to draw herself out of this mess, and maybe even find a way to eat well in the process?

Ariella Papa is 29 1/2 years old (for real). She finally found a pair of glasses that she likes. Her severance agreement prevents her from revealing the real reasons she no longer has a staff job. She currently lives, writes and eats in the city with the best restaurants -- New York.From Booklist:
Rebecca Cole thought she was on track. As the creator and producer of the children's television show Esme's Enlightenments, she was following her dream and plotting new adventures for her beloved character, a 12-year-old girl with spunk and sass. Enter Indiana Mutual, the bank that buys out the television company. Worse yet is Delores, a pint-size boss from hell who micromanages and wrests creative control over Esme from Rebecca, then fires her. Her roommate and best friend, Lauryn, has taken off for Martha's Vineyard, so Rebecca has no choice but to give up their expensive apartment and move back in with her ex-boyfriend, with whom she still occasionally sleeps. She tries to move on, but the most promising candidate turns out to be a cad. To make matters even worse, Rebecca and her three best friends are drifting apart. Papa's entertaining second novel is ideal reading for women in their twenties and thirties who are still struggling to find their niches in life. Kristine Huntley
