Careering by Daisy Buchanan

Hilarious and unflinchingly honest, Careering takes a hard look at the often toxic relationship working women have with their dream jobs.


careering (verb)
1. working endlessly for a job you used to love and now resent entirely
2. moving in a way that feels out of control

Imogen has always dreamed of writing for a magazine.  Infinite internships later, Imogen dreams of any job.  Writing her blog around double shifts at the pub is neither fulfilling her creatively nor paying the bills.

Harri might just be Imogen’s fairy godmother.  She’s moving from the glossy pages of Panache magazine to launch a fierce feminist site, The Know.  And she thinks Imogen’s most outrageous sexual content will help generate the clicks she needs.

But neither woman is aware of the crucial thing they have in common.  Harri, at the other end of her career, has also been bitten and betrayed by the industry she has given herself to.  Will she wake up to the way she’s being exploited before her protégé realises that not everything is copy?  Can either woman reconcile their love for work with the fact that work will never love them back?  Or is a chaotic rebellion calling…

Peer & Press Reviews

There is no writer out there who can make you laugh and cry quite like Daisy Buchanan.  Careering is a compelling and thoughtful read that every woman (and man) should have on their shelves.

Lucy Vine, author of Bad Choices

Blisteringly funny and painfully perceptive.  Daisy has that magic gift, of capturing the nuance and detail of a very specific world in such a way that it feels universally, eternally relatable.

Lauren Bravo, author of How To Break Up With Fast Fashion

Careering is instantly addictive.  It’s fresh and raw and mesmerising, filled with humour and heart.  Without a doubt, this is the book I’ll be shouting about to everyone this year as a must-read.

Beth Reekles, author of The Kissing Booth
