Description

‘So perceptive and wise about the media, privilege, 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.’ Daily Mail’A witty tale of the toxic world of modern work’ Independentcareering (verb) 1. working endlessly for a job you used to love and now resent entirely2. moving in a way that feels out of control *Imogen has always dreamed of writing for a magazine.
