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.

"Tulloch, a former resident of New York..."
If I moved to Sydney, I would still be a NYer, just as I would still be brown-eyed.

If "everyone remembers reading" this book then how come I've never heard of it?

I don't know anyone who has read the book.

Maybe they've created a fake history in order to scratch up some interest.

I've actually read it - but can't remember a thing about it except for the new wavey graphics on the cover. I think it got a "if you liked 'Slaves of New York'" review which prompted me to read it.
