Penny Drops, by Australian writer Victoria Neukerk, is about a woman who tries to turn the tables on her boss only to find the tables turning her way. The summary says: "Poor Penny hatches a plan to make her sleazy boss regret his harassment, bad pay and the long hours. Things quickly go awry as she trades her pervy boss for a shameless lawyer and then an slimy agent who catapults her to the gossip pages. A delightfully fun and trashy short story of a modern-day Holly Golightly's pitiful attempts at trying to strike it rich and fabulous." (ZP)
