As a freshly-anointed blogger for New York Magazine’s then-new blog The
Cut, Amy Odell was charged with spearheading a conversation on fashion,
which was for her a first. In her book Tales From the Back Row, Odell — who
is now the editor of Cosmopolitan.com — deftly describes her mishaps,
achievements and growing understanding of the fashion world with
self-deprecating humor and a hint of cynicism.
