Already singled out in O the Oprah Magazine and named an Amazon.com "mover and shaker," this edition will, Dundy hopes, introduce a new readership to the unforgettable Sally Jay Gorce, described by one reviewer as a cross between Carrie Bradshaw and Holden Caulfield. Dundy, for one, prefers comparisons to Bridget Jones. "I think she's adorable," she said, admitting she'd only seen the Bridget Jones movies. "Better the second than the first," she asserted. "By then she's arrived."
And now, the movie version
Soon, Sally Jay should be arriving on the big screen as well. Sara Risher, a former New Line executive who now heads a production company called Chick Flicks, has successfully negotiated the rights to "The Dud Avocado" with 20th Century Fox, which acquired them in perpetuity when it was first published.
