Techbitch - Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza (2015)

aka The Knockoff

Glossy magazine editor-in-chief Imogen returns to work after a bout of breast cancer to find her former assistant, Eve, is now in charge of a digital-only magazine. The Harvard-educated business student has hired a bunch of young, tech-savvy staffers and turned the office into a virtual sweatshop, where pulling all-nighters and losing weight for their boss' wedding are mandatory. As Eve's tactics alienate the fashion designers who feature in their pages, Imogen has to decide whether it's time to get out of the game or figure out how to play by the new rules. This is like a Devil Wears Prada, except the devil this time is the narcissist young assistant. At times Imogen turns to an online forum called Techbitch, where women vent about their young upstarts, and it would have been good to have seen this play more of a role in the story. Written by a duo who know the fashion and media worlds well, this is a thoroughly entertaining read which sounds a warning about the march of the know-it-all Millennials.
