SEE JANE WORK, Lindsey J. Palmer…

After months of flagging sales, a magazine’s beloved Editor in Chief gets the pink slip, and a notoriously tough woman swoops in to fill the publication’s top spot; the drama unfolds over the course of one very heated summer, in chapters narrated by a range of distinct voices – a photo editor secretly dating her boss, a backstabbing features editor gunning for a promotion, a beauty editor gaming the system for her own private ends, a new assistant beloved by the boss and disliked by everyone else, a well-respected deputy editor who is also the mom of triplets; as the staffers battle it out, they gossip and betray, and occasionally surprise each other with an act of tender grace. Palmer has worked at Self, Redbook and Glamour. (Kensington, Spring 2014)
