When Imogen Tate returns from a sabbatical to her post as editor-in-chief of Glossy Magazine, she finds her former assistant, Eve Morton, sitting comfortably in her very own office. Fresh out of Havard Business School, Eve plans to overhaul Glossy completely, with herself at the helm.
Imogen may have Calvin Klein and Diane Von Furstenberg on speed dial, but she can’t tell a Tweet from an Instagram and isn’t sure how an app differs from a website. Imogen’s livelihood is in danger and if she wants to keep her job, she has to get on the tech bandwagon, fast.
A sassy, savvy novel with humour and grace, Techbitch is The Devil Wears Prada for the digital age.
A hilarious and affirmative tale that celebrates cross-generational female collaboration in the work place, everyone will recognise Imogen and Eve from their own office.
