Author Paula Froelich has had the scoop on almost every high profile New York scandal. Now she brings her insider's perspective to fiction in a delicious debut that had readers talking all summer.

Mercury in Retrograde introduces three women whose lives intersect when they each decide to move into the same SoHo apartment building. Penelope Mercury is an intrepid reporter at the New York Telegraph who spends her days pounding the pavement in every borough to meet the unreasonable demands of her boss. She aspires to cover courtroom drama for the paper, but on one disastrous day instead of being promoted, she gets fired. Lena "Lipstick Carcrash" Lippencrass is an Upper East Side socialite who works at the high fashion magazine Y and loses her perfect apartment after her wealthy parents cut her off from her trust fund. And Dana Gluck is a corporate lawyer on the verge of becoming a partner who has seen her marriage and prospects for motherhood disappear, leaving her almost comatose with depression.

As these three disparate women become friends, they soon discover that having their carefully planned lives fall to pieces might have been the best thing that could have ever happened to them. A thoroughly modern novel, Mercury in Retrograde captures the trials and tribulations of city life with humor and heart.
