About this deal

It was a fun story arch with an interesting theme throughout that echoes the debate of women empowerment and what is it to be a women, and fuck anyone who disagrees. While in parallel we learn about her boss (who in Imogen's eyes is immensely successful) going through similar struggles.

This is a fabulous and fierce take on womanhood in the workplace and the toxic relationship we can have with our vocation. Her books include the novels Insatiable (longlisted for the CWIP prize) , Careering (as heard on BBC Sounds) and Limelight, and the non-fiction titles How To Be A Grown Up and The Sisterhood.

Reading about a woman dealing with career burnout was utterly relatable but I found the execution fell a little flat for me. A great exploration of relationships with ourselves, our families, our colleague's, our past and futures, our careers, our dreams, our voices.The author also does a masterful job of slightly highlighting prejudice and racism in the publishing world without making it her own story (the author is a white woman). A love story about work, self-worth and modern womanhood, Careering is, quite simply, the funniest novel I've read all year. Daisy really shows both sides of the story so well- especially with the comparison of Louise, another young woman working with Imogen whose biggest concern is her dad no longer paying her extortionate rent if she doesn’t make something of herself.

Exploring the exhausting push-pull of trying to pin down a career you love but that doesn't love you back, Buchanan's book is set to capture the zeitgeist as so many of us question where we're at.Like The Devil Wears Prada and The Pursuit of Love had a baby which was then adopted by a grittier Jilly Cooper. I could marry a vicar next year, and I’ve still done something crazier and sluttier than most people.
