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' Stylistcareering (verb) 1. working endlessly for a job you used to love and now resent entirely2. moving in a way that feels out of control *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 protégé 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...

Nell Frizzell, author of The Panic Years'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, author of Bad Choices'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.'

Lauren Bravo, author of How To Break Up With Fast Fashion'Careering is instantly addictive. It's fresh and raw and mesmerising, filled with humour and heart. Without a doubt, this is the book I'll be shouting about to everyone this year as a must-read.' Beth Reekles, author of The Kissing Booth'Careering will strike such a chord with anyone who has ever walked to a job interview in trainers with a tote bag containing heels over their shoulder, feeling like an imposter.' Emma Hughes, author of No Such Thing As Perfect'So perceptive and wise about the media, privilege, the differing but equally troubling pressures that women of all ages face, while still being moving, laugh out loud funny, and inspiring. I loved it.' Louise O'Neill, author of Idol 'A great great book. Daisy Buchanan has that special something that makes a wonderful popular fiction writer - acute observational skills, huge empathy and a perfect balance of light and shade. I loved loved loved Careering.' Marian Keyes, author of Again, Rachel Vorwort Daisy Buchanan is the queen of the unconventional love story.
