A Lady's Guide to Selling Out
Expected publication date: April 10, 2018
An ambitious young woman navigates the slippery world of advertising--and the equally slippery question of who she wants to be. Mad Men meets The Devil Wears Prada in this smart and witty debut novel.
Casey Pendergast, once a book-loving English major, is now a clothes-loving brand strategist at a top ad agency. Casey is a superstar, and her career has skyrocketed: she knows what people want, and she knows how to give it to them. When her hard-to-please boss assigns her to a top-secret marketing campaign that pairs authors with corporations hungry for creative copy and upmarket cache, Casey is initially thrilled--but as she begins to meet and woo her literary idols, she can't help but question the cost on her conscience. With an unforgettable voice--plucky and razor-sharp, equal parts feminist and pop-culture--this is the story of a young woman untangling the contradictions of our culture, and finding her way out of the rat race by returning to her first love: literature. - from Goodreads
