About the Author
Olivia Goldsmith was an author known worldwide for her humorous and ironic books for and about women. Her recipe for success lay in the fact that she knew her subject matter well. Divorced in her midthirties, Goldsmith was left with literally nothing, and thus she turned to writing. What resulted was the novel The First Wives Club, a bestseller with more than 5 million sold copies, translated into 28 languages. The movie with the same title was also a success. Olivia Goldsmith died in 2004.
