What We're Reading This Weekend: Novels on Working Women

Originally posted 09/04/2014 06:45PM

The popular nursery rhyme says, "first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage," but where does career fall into that mix? For many modern women, work precedes the other life events.

Consider this week's cover star Angelina Jolie, a successful actress prior to falling for Brad Pitt, building their family and then tying the knot much later.

And the late, great Joan Rivers's life's work paved the way for female comedians.

This week our staff is reading fiction about other hard-working gals. And these protagonists are all trying to find that elusive work-life balance.

When Pat O'Brien set out to write the story of his "big life" – his star-studded career in TV, the drinking that destroyed it and the four rehab trips it took to get sober – he wanted to be truthful. Brutally so.

"Most people try to sugar coat what happened and make their books a 'love me more' and 'here's what's next,' " the former CBS Sports, Access Hollywood and Insider broadcaster tells PEOPLE of his new memoir, I'll Be Right Back After This.

"I've had such a big life and I almost died. Recovery has taught me to be honest about it."
