Sad Desk SaladeBook - 2012
As a former editor for popular websites, including Slate and Jezebel, Jessica Grose intimately understands the realities of life in the blogosphere-and she employs this knowledge to hilarious effect in her edgy and timely debut novel, Sad Desk Salad. Grose's story of a savvy blogger who stumbles upon an irresistible scoop-one that could cause irreparable damage to a young woman's life and reputation-and must reconcile her true values with the ruthless demands of a gossip- and reality-obsessed culture is a stinging and wildly funny indictment of America's obsession with celebrity dirt. This fictional behind-the-scenes look at a booming online industry is smart and sharp contemporary women's fiction, a The Devil Wears Prada for the twenty-teens.
