‘thelondonpaper's former ‘City Girl’’ has her say in a book based on her column in the free paper, read by millions of London’s commuters each day. Exposing what life is really like in the Square Mile, from a female perspective, be prepared for some hair-raising stories and juicy gossip from a real insider.
City Girl was watching when all the boys thought they were masters of the universe. She was there when they blew their bonuses on Lamborghinis and lap dancers. She was fighting for survival as they sent the country into the worst slump since the Great Depression.
"City Girl" was born when she arrived in London, and joined her first merchant bank in the boom days. She worked for old-school stockbrokers in the shadow of the Bank of England and competed against the bad-boy brokers of Canary Wharf. She worked with the super-rich hedge-fund managers in the sleek streets of Mayfair.
She met, married and divorced her very own City Boy. She made and lost millions of pounds. She's seen it all, done it all and lived to tell the tale.
Fresh from writing "The London" paper's "City Girl" column, our heroine gives us the inside track on life in the financial capital of the world. This is her story. She's here to tell us what went wrong - and why the girls are the only ones who can put it right.

City Girl landed her first job in the City of London in 2004, rose fast through the banking ranks and was frequently the only girl on her team. She has traded bonds and derivatives in some of the most competitive and testosterone-filled offices on earth. She loves it, hates it and remembers every last detail. In 2008 she started writing the weekly 'City Girl' column in thelondonpaper - the same slot as the hugely popular City Boy column that led to Geraint Anderson's best-selling book of the same name.More About City Girl
