As Ben Widdicombe reported at stylelist.com:
Everyone remembers the first time they read "Fabulous Nobodies," author Lee Tulloch's cult '80s fashion novel set in New York's East Village.
Long before Carrie Bradshaw there was Reality Nirvana Tuttle ... trying to get by as a "door whore" at a trendy downtown club and striving for that elusive quality of New York fabulousness.
I read the book lying on a college dorm room floor thousands of miles away, and it's one of those classics about Manhattan that just makes you want to throw your most glamorous clothes into a suitcase and move to the city right away.
Tulloch, a former New Yorker who in recent years relocated back to her native Sydney, was in town ... to celebrate the development of her novel into a movie.
