"It is the story of six very different women who met at college in Boston and swore to be friends for the rest of their lives. They call themselves the Dirty Girls Social Club. The only obvious thing they have in common is that they are all professional women and Latin American, but the real thing about them is that their lives tap into universal truths about women and sisterhood.

And then there is Usnavys, a big gal who is as showy as Liberace; no-one would guess, meeting her for the first time in her full-length white fur
