A young, sharply observed take on modern office life when all the possibilities of a degree landing you an excellent position are shattered by your first mundane job until suddenly the tide turns. This is very American but it is also very astute, good fun and lively page-turning stuff.
Citizen Girl follows an ambitious and idealistic young woman as she confronts what it means to be young and female in the new economy, where a college degree entitles you to make copies and color-coordinate file folders--if your'e lucky.
