Fabulous Nobodies book. Long before chick lit was a genre unto itself, Lee Tulloch wrote the last word on it.

A Novel About a Girl Who's In Love.

Tulloch gives us a surreal view of the East Village, enlarging the retro-fashion set until they seem to suck all the air-and all the interesting thoughts-out of the world. Some fabulous lines, really, but not worth reading. A Novel About a Girl Who's In Love.

Fabulous Nobodies is the definitive eighties club culture novel. Everyone that I know who has read it, has fallen head over heels in love with Reality - the fabulous nobody doorwhore, who desperately styles herself into a fabulous somebody. A brilliantly written, inspirational novel that you will treasure and read over and over again. Can't wait for Miss Tulloch's follow up. I Love this book!!!!

by Lee Tulloch These Fabulous Nobodies will take you on a quest to be Truly Somebody, in a city long gone but never to be forgotten: New York City of the 1980s.

We read this book for book club. We have read a wide variety of books over the past 5 years. This book won a special award- the absolute worst book ever written.

After reading Wraith (one of my all time favorite books), I ordered this book over the net from Sydney since Lee Tulloch is from Australia and her books are published there. Please, find a used copy... you won't regret it (although Wraith is even better).
This is a witty, clever satire on the fashion industry and a generation obsessed with self image and holding a "fabulous" reputation. Reality is the perfect heroine- 20 years old, in love with her clothes (to the point of talking to them and naming them), pretty, quirky, and hopelessly lost. Her goal in life is to finally get her name in print and be recognized for the true fashion icon she sees herself as, whom everyone would love to copy as she is such a trendsetter. Her friends are equally obsessed with their looks, and spend whole afternoons wondering what to wear, finding the exact shade of nail polish to go with an outfit, going shoplifting and spending every last dime on designer clothes they pick up used in thrift shops. The whole thing is so crazy and farfetched you can do nothing but laugh and love them at the same time, especially with Lee Tulloch's sense of humor. However, there is still an element of truth that has been exaggerated which will make you think for a while, especially when you consider the author was a model and worked as an editor for Australian Bazaar, and is familiar with the shallow fashion crowds of New York City.

A dear friend of mine gave me this book to read back in the 90's and said this character is you if you were a woman.
Fab Nobodies brings together Ab Fab & Sex and the City before they existed. I could not put this book down
and I have never laughed so much reading a book. It is just hilarious for those of us who experienced the 80's and
90's in our 20's & 30's. One reviewer gave it a 1 star and read it for her book club. She said it was the worst book she had ever read.
That's a shame. Must not have the sense of humor that is required to enjoy this book. It's an easy read and like I said
just hilarious with quotes you will use for a long, long time. Plus it's really inexpensive used. Enjoy!!!

Before Bridget Jones, Sex and the City, or Shopaholic, there was Lee Tulloch's "Fabulous Nobodies."
Lee Tulloch was once the editor of Australian Vogue, and she puts her knowledge of fashion and the whole fashion glam scene to hysterically funny use in this little novel. The book opens with a hilarious narrative about the main character's nails of all things.
It's been years since I read Fabulous Nobodies, but it's a definite stand-out in a genre that didn't exist when the book was published in the early 90s. If you're in your 20s, a slave to fashion, any or all of the above, you've got to read this book. You can finish it in a day and you'll spend most of the time laughing at the antics of the main character and her crew. Our 20s are a great time of life (if only in retrospect), because we're no longer teenagers but not quite mature enough to be adults, so there's much goofing off, goofing around, and goofing up to learn from (or at least laugh about). Fabulous Nobodies is filled with all three. Don't miss this one.

Are you curious about the life of Carrie Bradshaw before she became the successful columnist with a penchant for designer clothes and $450 shoes? If you answered "Yes!" then you need to read this book. The story of Reality Nirvana Tuttle is, without a doubt, an unintended pre-quel to Sex and the City.

Ignore what the woman from Library Journal has to say! I'm certain that she's the wrong demographic to understand the social relevance of this story. Fabulous Nobodies is funny, earnest, so very New York City in the late 1980s, and, for those of us who were in our 20s during that time, a wonderfully fun trip down memory lane. If you can remember when in was possible to rent an apartment in alphabet city for $350 month and have a tub in your kitchen then you'll appreciate this story. If you can remember scouring Goodwill, Sal's Boutique, and vintage clothing shops with your meager earnings from a club, record store, or underground publication then you'll appreciate this story. If you can remember life before the internet and came of age at a time when local fanzines and arts newspapers were the ruling social arbiters then you'll appreciate this story.

Lee Tulloch's book is a completely captivating snapshot of a place, time, and people who no longer exist except in our scrapbooks and collected memorabilia.
It's so easy
I came upon Fabulous Nobodies by chance in a bookshelf left behind in my new home. It is far and away, without a doubt my absolute favorite book in the world. I practically know it by heart, I've read it so much. It is about a 21-year-old "doorwhore", a girl who decides who is stylish enough to get through the door of the nightclub she works at. Naturally, she is completely obsessed with clothing, and doesn't seem to care much about anything else, which makes her name, Reality seem odd and ironic. Aside from planning what she will wear at night, she spends her days trying desperately to get her name into print, and finally become a "somebody". An overall hilarious, cute, sharp book.
