Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is a comedic novel written by Anita Loos, first published in 1925. The book is presented as the diary of Lorelei Lee, a beautiful and charming but somewhat naive blonde woman who is determined to marry a wealthy man. Lorelei and her friend Dorothy travel to Europe, where they embark on a series of romantic and financial adventures. The novel is a satire of the "gold digger" trope and the high society of the time. Loos' writing style is celebrated for its humor, wit, and its commentary on gender and class issues. "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" was adapted into a successful stage musical and a film, and has had a lasting impact on popular culture, including the famous phrase, "diamonds are a girl's best friend." The book remains a beloved classic of American literature and a testament to Loos' talent as a writer.
