Bandbox I give it 3 stars

In most historical novels, excessive attention to period details is an annoying form of name-dropping. In this comic novel about a fashionable magazine in the Roaring Twenties, the excessive attention to period detail is a necessary part of the effect. How else to capture the dizzying feeling of riding at the very crest of the onrushing wave of the latest and greatest? Entertaining but not at all compelling.

Oh, and oh yes, way too much use of blackmail as a plot device.
