Reviews

"A gorgeous book--I loved it. Funny, intriguing, and utterly unputdownable."--Penny Vincenzi "internationally bestselling author of More Than You Know "
"Karin Tanabe's energetic, humorous debut is narrated by a young reporter trying to prove herself by chasing the biggest story of the year. The List perfectly captures the frenetic, all-consuming pace of political reporting, with a healthy dose of scandal, glamour and intrigue thrown in. Think The Devil Wears Prada meets Capitol Hill."--Sarah Pekkanen "author of These Girls "
"The List is a wonderfully witty insider's romp through Washington. Karin Tanabe has as sharp a tongue as she does an eye for detail, about everything from political scandal to office politics. And I thought New York was a tough town!"--Cristina Alger "author of The Darlings "
"The List is mandatory reading for anyone who wonders about the impact of new media on Washington's political culture. Tanabe has written a novel that is delicious fun and incredibly revealing about life at the intersection of politics and journalism." --Nicolle Wallace, New York Times bestselling author of Eighteen Acres
"The List is a breezy, dishy romp through Washington, DC politics, journalism, and scandal--a witty and caffeinated glimpse into a world few of us ever see, let alone know as intimately as Karin Tanabe surely does. But underneath the considerable pleasures of its glimmering surface, it's a surprisingly moving coming of age story about a young woman navigating the bumpy terrain between ambition and ethics, between her hunger for professional success and the quiet truth of her own heart."--Lauren Fox "author of Friends Like Us and Still Life with Husband "
"Part coming of age, part political thriller, Karin Tanabe's The List is a mordantly funny send-up of quadruple espresso fueled journalism in the internet age, with the most irresistible heroine since Bridget Jones at its center. This is Evelyn Waugh's Scoop for the 21st century."--Susan Fales-Hill "author of Imperfect Bliss "
