Book Description

As the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, Cleo and Dolly magazines and a newspaper columnist, Mia Freedman has seen it all - and written about it too.

From rising hemlines to fallen stars, the minutiae of Brazilian waxes to the ′Do I look fat in this?′ divide between the sexes, Mia has pondered issues big and small and distilled them into hilariously charming tales.

Mia gives full rein to her passion for fashion, charting the trends - both ridiculous and valid - that cause grown women to obsess over their mirrors, and also astutely observes the complexities of relationships between not just men and women, but women and their female friends. In between all of that, she movingly describes her path through motherhood, looks askance at several cultural trends and embraces new technologies.

The New Black is a handbook for modern girls, and guys, trying to make sense of the new millennium - and wondering what the hell they′re going to wear this Saturday night.

About the Author

Mia Freedman was always in a hurry to kick her big life goals. So when she became editor of Cosmopolitan at 24 and had a baby a few months later, she thought she was right on track.

But when things unexpectedly fell apart, she was forced to face a few uncomfortable truths about who she was and what she wanted to do with her life.

Over the next decade, she would experience some dazzling career highs and some devastating personal lows. She would lose all her confidence and then – eventually – find it again in an unexpected place. She would make mistakes at work and at home and she would learn some surprising lessons about what made her happy.

As a writer, magazine editor, popular blogger and media personality, Mia has been called the voice of her generation. Mama Mia is her story so far.

A Question:
What has been the greatest moment in your life so far and why?


Without a doubt, it is meeting my husband and giving birth to my children. I have kicked a few career goals that I'd set myself but none ever came close to those moments and nothing ever will. Those moments are seared into my heart and my mind as if they happened this morning.
