True Prep by Lisa Birnbach is due out September 2010

The Old Testament c. 1980
The New Testament c. 2010
New York - That's right, preps everywhere have a new bible. From the internationally known best-selling author of The Official Preppy Handbook from 1980 -- a look at how the old guard of natural-fiber-loving, dog worshipping, G&T-soaked preppies is adapting to cell phones, the Internet, rehab, political correctness, and reality TV.

You will find all of the same witty writing and cultural insight we lived on in the 1980s (and ever since). Even though True Prep has not yet been completed (pre-order now for September 2010), PMH obtained a few sample pages. We were delighted to find updated "Prep Persona" profiles depicting stages and aspects of the prep lifesytle and the same type of hilarous side-stories that supplement the text just as in the original.

The initial run of True Prep will only include 200,000 copies so pre-order today to ensure you don't get left out.

Pre-order your copy through PMH now.

There will be an author tour in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, LA, Miami, NY, SF, and DC. Who knows, you might be lucky enough to get Ms. Birnbach to sign yours. Watch a video posted by publisher Knopf of Ms. Birnbach and Mr. Kidd discussing True Prep. ~
