Summary
  • "An irreverent and deeply moving comedy about friendship, fertility, and fighting for one's sanity in a toxic workplace."--Provided by publisher
  • Jen, a once-promising painter, takes a job at a feminist nonprofit. The foundation's aim is to empower women, but staffers spend all their time devising acronyms for imaginary programs, ruthlessly undermining one another, and stroking the ego of their boss, celebrity philanthropist Leora Infinitas. Jen is already feeling inferior to her friends: a wealthy attorney with a picture-perfect family, and a passionately committed artist. On top of that, her apparent inability to have a baby only intensifies her feelings of inferiority. A series of events force Jen to reckon with some hard truths about herself and the people she loves most
Summary
Taking a poorly defined job at a feminist nonprofit when the 2008 economic crisis forces her to abandon her once-promising art career, Jen finds herself in a toxic workplace of back-stabbing co-workers under an egocentric philanthropist boss while struggling with insecurity in the face of her successful friends
