Working in a world where a college degree qualifies her to make photocopies and color-coordinate file folders, 24-year-old Girl is struggling to keep up with the essential trinity of food, shelter, and student loans. So when she finally lands the job of her dreams, she ignores her misgivings and concentrates on getting the job done...whatever that may be.Sharply observed and devastatingly funny, Citizen Girl captures what it means to be young and female in the new economy. A personal glimpse into an impersonal world, Citizen Girl is edgy and heartfelt, an entertaining story that is startlingly relevant.
"Many, many funny lines....Girl's job-hunting woes will resonate with lots of readers." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Not only will this latest comic adventure appeal to the thousands of less-than-affluent urbanites who laughed through the duo's best-selling debut, The Nanny Diaries, but it would also seem to be a natural for young working women dealing with crazy bosses and shifting job descriptions." (Boston Globe)
"McLaughlin and Kraus deftly satirize postfeminist, postmodern, 21st-century America, using management jargon and hipster slang with equal precision....The authors have conjured up a vision of America that's just this side of dystopian, and their funhouse-mirror worldview generates its own strange suspense." (Booklist)
