1/14/1994 What's A Girl Gotta Do? gets done
January 14, 1994. This day saw the publication of What's A Girl Gotta Do? It was the first novel by Canadian author Sparkle Hayter, about reporter Robin Hudson. Kirkus Review,
in one of its frequent moments of incoherence declared: "The dialogue
reads like a string of Percodan lunches, but Robin's seen-it-all naivete
makes this an appealing debut."
