"Sex and the City meets a post-millennial Mad Men. Irresistible fun."
— Robert Rodi, author of Bitch Goddess, Dogged Pursuit and When You Were Me
"A rollicking ride through the trials of life and love in NYC set against the madcap world of Madison Avenue. Fresh and fun, Ashworth's debut makes her one to watch."
— Josh Kilmer-Purcell, New York Times bestselling author of I Am Not Myself These Days and The Bucolic Plague, and star of TV's The Fabulous Beekman Boys
Jill Barber is a failed former actress who spends her days working for a large Madison Avenue agency trying desperately to hang onto its largest client, and her nights finishing her MFA. Tellco Toys' account is about to walk out the door and Constable, the agency's mercurial President, is making everyone's life miserable: Jill's bosses, the Über-Producers Nick and Sandi; Petra and Robin (a hip and friendly creative team with a knack for giving Jill bad advice); and client service guy Graham, who has taken more than a professional interest in Jill. And against her better judgment, she soon finds herself in an ambiguous romantic relationship with her night school instructor, a formerly-hot young novelist named Jonathan Wunder, while trying to deflect the attentions of her straight-laced and smitten co-worker without hurting her budding career.
HER LATEST SUPPORTING ROLE is a romantic comedy set in the funny and frantic world of New York advertising. The ad business is filled with little dramas and big personalities, and this story has both in abundance. Jill’s romantic missteps—as she maneuvers between her enigmatic instructor and her charming but hapless colleague—and the agency’s increasingly desperate attempts to save the big account (and everyone’s jobs) are parallel stories that drive toward a surprising climax.
