Bond Girl

Erin Duffy. Morrow, $24.99 (304p) ISBN 978-0-06-206589-6
Despite promising insider secrets about what really happens at a Wall Street firm, Duffy’s debut crashes as fast as the stock market did. Alex Garrett, a recent college graduate who began her Wall Street career in 2006, dreams of fast-talking days on the trading floor. Instead, she sits on a folding chair at a government bond desk, fetches ridiculously large takeout orders, and serves as a doormat for her colleagues, as well as the office ladies’ man she dates. While the peculiar tasks Alex is forced to fulfill with a “yes, sir” attitude, and the crazy tales of work life pique the reader’s curiosity, these stories quickly become boring. Unfortunately, Duffy’s attempt to sell her trade secrets doesn’t pan out, and it’s hard to sustain interest by the time she gets to the number one thing you’ll want to know about working on “the Street.” (Feb.)
