The AUTHOR'S CUT: WITH 150 PAGES OF SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIAL--author interviews, the original "Goldiggers" article commissioned by Esquire, cover tries, press items, and feature reviews, done in scrapbook format ... On the front and back covers: Alessandra Ambrosio photographed by Raphael Mazzucco. "How to Catch a Man at the Century's End: A face-to-face with 'diggers, ' women who troll resorts in search of millionaires. We know that women like this exist, but until now we didn't have all the gory details. Bo is charming and the book is hilarious and sympathetic." - The New York Times Book Review "The Millennium Girl skillfully takes us through the marriage market of the new millennium. Felske is the real thing: He knows his territory, and he writes about it with wit and style." - Vogue "The resourceful Felske's latest topic is gold diggers, the sweet lovelies more shark-like than Anita Loos's or Truman Capote's and the author laces every page with a masterful cynicism." - Kirkus Reviews "Based on a magazine article Felske wrote about young women hustling in Aspen, The Millennium Girl, is snappy fun, a box of candy wrapped up with a black latex bow." - Booklist "A strong follow-up to his previous, Word, Felske uses his trademark insight and detail to peer into the lives of sassy, sad women and their encounters with the richest. A complete hoot, sexy, hard to put down, it's 100 percent fun, and recommended for all fiction collections." - Library Journal "In The Millennium Girl, pulse-of-the-Zeitgeist author Coerte Felske sets his sights on 'Diggers, ' the globe-trotting hotties on the hunt for 'Walletmen, ' the ultra-rich men of their dreams." - Detour "Who are these lit It Girls?The Millennium Girl. 'I'm not a hooker but I do live off men, ' says Bodicea. I wanted to hate her, but she was too shameless and too hilariously over-the-top." - Mademoiselle "Felske's cleverly describes the art of the gold-digger and the folly of their prey. Bo invents cute nicknames for the Diggers and acidic jibes at upper-class hypocrisy, good for chuckles." - Publishers Weekly "Great fun and more than a racy rehash of Pretty Woman, Felske covered the 'digger' scene in an article for Esquire and clearly knows the turf. Female empowerment, a having-it-all ending, a pampered husband-hunter, and a flaming gay sidekick perpetuate these pages." - Entertainment Weekly "Breakfast at Tiffany's for the year 2000. A totally titillating read." - Woman's Own "Bodicea is possessed of a wry sense of humor and eye for detail and she sympathetically picks apart her own insecurities and those of fellow Diggers. Once again, Felske expertly maps the morally dubious interiors of characters who live on a razor's edge of scruples." - The Southampton Press
