Break in Case of Emergency (2016)

 

Jen is an out-of-work artist who lives in New York with husband Jim. She is hired as a communications manager at the Leora Infinitas Foundation, or LIFt, an organisation that focuses on empowering women all over the world. Surrounded by colleagues whose job seems to be to agree to everything her boss says, Jen tries to survive her professional life while at home she and Jim are working on the Project, aka getting pregnant. Jen feels inferior to her more successful friends, she has a strange relationship with her passive-aggressive mother, and, after months of working at the foundation, she still hasn't personally met her boss who has a love of acronyms and imaginary programs. This is a funny but also moving novel, a brilliant and original read. (NP) 8/10
