In the Manhattan brownstone they share, three ,women , close to the summit of their careers, share their triumphs and defeats, and learn that success has its price as well as its payoffs. In this compelling and dramatic novel, they ask themselves and each other ask the questions women can no longer avoid. Cass, Paula and Ellin - an ad exec, a lawyer and a writer - are part of the first generation of baby boom women who seemed to have a real chance at shattering the glass ceiling, breaking open the boardroom doors, and balancing work and life.the top. And although it's set in the eighties, it's as contemporary as today's headlines.
A smart, sexy and engaging read about three close friends who tell each other the truths no one else will, celebrate their victories, and laugh as well as cry about their changing definitions of happiness,love, and especially, success.
Although Tradeoffs is a novel, it's based on a 1980 study of 60 successful women by this author, published as "Women on Top: Success Passages and Personal Growth."
