We all fell in love with Jillian Medoff after reading her novel, I COULDN’T LOVE YOU MORE (5 Spot). It’s about a mother who has to make a decision no parent can’t fathom – having to choose which one of her children she will save.
Jillian’s new novel, THIS COULD HURT (Harper) will be published on Tuesday. It’s a razor-sharp, achingly funny novel, which takes a look at how important work is in our lives. She creates a group of compelling and flawed characters who fall in and out of love, and are always dreaming for something better. They hope to stay employed, while the economy fluctuates making layoffs more realistic than ever being told, “good job.” Rosa Guerrero the Chief Executive VP, in charge of hiring and firing for the entire company, but more than not, she’s the mother hen of a bunch of people all with their own mishegas.
THIS COULD HURT is an inspired satire on something we all (well mostly) have to do daily! Go to work! For the people working in the Human Resources department of the Ellery Consumer Research Group, sometimes its a good day, for others bad, but at Ellery, it’s never boring!
I was lucky to receive an advance copy of THIS COULD HURT and can tell you, it had me laughing aloud. I love Jillian’s writing. It’s so relatable
Check out THIS COULD HURT in bookstores, Tuesday. We have one copy courtesy of Jillian and Harper. Just tell us the worst job you had. We’ll announce a winner soon.
