Interview: The Nanny Diaries


Real Audio Listen in RealAudio          help Need audio help?

There's a new hot book out called "The Nanny Diaries." It's fiction, and it's a hilarious and cutting look at taking care of wealthy children. The authors, Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, worked as nannies during their college years in New York, and I caught up with them over a cup of hot chocolate in a funky New York cafe in the Angelika Theatre in Soho. In one chapter in the book, they describe just what a vacation to Nantucket is like for a nanny. Nicola, or Nikki, says the vacations aren't the perks of traveling with the rich that you might imagine them to be.
