Promising Young Women
'Anyone who enjoyed Jami Attenberg's All Grown Upor Sally Rooney's Conversations With Friendswill find much to like in Caroline O'Donoghue's darkly funny novel ... A zippy, astute read.' Irish IndependentJane Peters is an adrift 20-something by day, and a world-weary agony aunt by night. But when an office party goes too far, Jane dissolves into the high-stakes world of being the Other Woman: a role she has the right advice for, but not the smarts to follow through on. What starts out as a drunken mistake quickly unravels as Jane discovers that sex and power go hand-in-hand, and that it's hard to keep your head when you've become someone else's dirty little secret.A promotion and a pay rise aren't the only changes that Jane's faced with: as her physical and mental stability start to falter, her career, her friendships and even her life are put in jeopardy... A striking, gothic, witty debut novel about being a young woman in a man's world.
