Essential reading: Choire Sicha's New York Times Book Review of Bergdorf Blondes by Vogue contributing editor Plum Sykes.

In ''Bergdorf Blondes,'' Sykes rounds up all the right satiric details, then never quite turns them into great farce or parody because the fascist force of the plotting insists that her narrator be strangely imbecilic. After all, if she were allowed much intelligence, she would too soon figure out her happy ending, and there wouldn't be much of a book to sell, right?

I think that about sums it up, non?
