Summary:

Based on the real-life experiences and the inside story on the real lives of the rich and privileged from the women who know all the secrets—the nannies.

The Nanny Diaries deftly skewers the manner in which America's overprivileged raise les petits—as if grooming them for a best-of-show competition. A poignant satire, it punctures the glamour of Manhattan's upper class to tackle head-on the truer state of backstairs Park Avenue.

Struggling to graduate from NYU and afford her microscopic apartment, Nanny takes a job caring for the only son of the wealthy X family. She rapidly learns the insane amount of juggling involved in ensuring that a Park Avenue wife who doesn't work, cook, clean, or raise her own child has a smooth day.

When the Xes' marriage begins to disintegrate, Nanny's nearly impossible mission becomes maintaining the mental health of their four-year-old, her own integrity, and most importantly, her sense of humor. Over nine tense months, Mrs. X and Nanny perform the age-old dance of decorum and power as they test the limits of modern-day servitude.
