So perceptive and wise about the media, privilege, and the differing but equally troubling pressures that women of all ages face, while still being moving, laugh-out-loud funny, and inspiring. I loved it.' Louise O'Neill, author of Idol'As she did with sex in her first novel, Insatiable, now Daisy Buchanan holds up a mirror to the changing way we work in the raw and relatable Careering' Red'This thought-provoking, emotionally intelligent, hilarious, sexy, and always sharp novel is a fabulous ride.'

1. Working endlessly for a job you used to love and now resent entirely

2. Moving in a way that feels out of control *Imogen has always dreamed of writing for a magazine. Infinite internships later, Imogen dreams of any job.

Writing her blog around double shifts at the pub is neither fulfilling her creatively nor paying the bills. Harri might just be Imogen's fairy godmother.

Though entertaining - you can't help but cringe at some of the situations Imogen finds herself in - the novel takes a hard look at the very real challenges women still face in the workplace today.

With the events of the last two years making many questions about what really matters in life, Buchanan leaves you with the reminder that whether you love or loathe your job, it doesn't define who you are or put a value on your self-worth.' Stylist'A great book. Daisy Buchanan has that special something that makes a wonderful popular fiction writer - acute observational skills, huge empathy, and a perfect balance of light and
