"A hilariously funny, compact volume about a hotel's denizens that delivers well-aimed zingers—a winner." — Kirkus Reviews
Like scores of career girls before her, Heather Baumhauer leaves behind small-town life in the Midwest to find adventure and an exciting job in New York City. But when her apartment plans fall through, she worries that her dream is over before she's even tasted a real New York bagel. Enter The Zonderling, a one-hundred-year-old residence for women. Finding it miraculously affordable, Heather moves in and quickly befriends Jennifer, a financial analyst, and Emily, an aspiring actress.
But life at The Zonderling is not without its complications. From antiquated rules (no men allowed!) to shared bathrooms (never enough toilet paper) to cantankerous neighbors (tenants since the Nixon administration), Heather must learn to adapt to life both inside and outside the confines of an old-fashioned residential hotel in this comedy about what it truly takes to make it in New York.
