Careering, Hardback Book

Careering Hardback



careering (verb) 1. working endlessly for a job you used to love and now resent entirely2. moving in a way that feels out of control*There's a fine line between on the right track and coming off the rails. 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. She's moving from the glossy pages of Panache magazine to launch a fierce feminist site, The Know. And she thinks Imogen's most outrageous sexual content will help generate the clicks she needs. But neither woman is aware of the crucial thing they have in common.

Harri, at the other end of her career, has also been bitten and betrayed by the industry she has given herself to.

Will she wake up to the way she's being exploited before her protege realises that not everything is copy?

Can either woman reconcile their love for work with the fact that work will never love them back? Or is a chaotic rebellion calling... Hilarious and unflinchingly honest, Careering takes a hard look at the often toxic relationship working women have with their dream jobs. 'A love story about work, self-worth and modern womanhood, Careering is, quite simply, the funniest novel I've read all year.' Nell Frizzell'There is no writer out there who can make you laugh and cry quite like Daisy Buchanan.

Careering is a compelling and thoughtful read that every woman (and man) should have on their shelves.' Lucy Vine'Full of brilliant characters, loveable chaos and a world of magazine nostalgia.

If you've ever had a job suck your soul, even slightly, you'll love it.' Emma Gannon'Blisteringly funny and painfully perceptive.

Daisy has that magic gift, of capturing the nuance and detail of a very specific world in such a way that it feels universally, eternally relatable.' Lauren Bravo
