Description: "You don't have to identify with Peggy Olson on Mad Men - or even know who she is - to appreciate Mad Women . . . a breezy and salty memoir.' - The New York TimesWhat was it like to be an advertising woman on Madison Avenue in the 60s and 70s - that era of casual sex and professional serfdom? Mad Women is an immensely entertaining and bittersweet tell-all account of life in the New York advertising world by Jane Maas, a copywriter who succeeded in the primarily male jungle depicted in the hit show Mad Men.Fans of the show are dying to know how accurate it is: was there really that much sex at the office? Were there really three-martini lunches? Were women really second-class citizens? Jane Maas says the answer to all three questions is unequivocally "yes.' Her book, based on her own experiences and countless interviews with her peers, gives the full stories. Wickedly funny and full of juicy inside information, Mad Women also tackles some of the tougher issues of the era, such as unequal pay, rampant, jaw-dropping sexism, and the difficult choice many women faced between motherhood and their careers.
