Reviews

"Sad Desk Salad by Jessica Grose is the Devil Wears Prada for the blogger age. A laser focused snapshot of our time, the novel gives readers an insider's perspective on the 24/7 grindhouse of celebrity-obsessed new media. Funny and heartfelt, a must-read."---Valerie Frankel, author of Four of a Kind
"Jessica Grose is a smart, engaging, new voice in fiction. She will make you think anew about celebrity culture, modern feminism, and the perils of living online. She is also very funny. So put your work aside, open your sad desk salad, and read this book!"--Amy Sohn, author of Motherland and Prospect Park West
"A whip-smart, lacerating, laugh-out-loud look at what it's like to be young, smart and trying to make it in the big city."--Jennifer Weiner
"Fun . . . Grose takes what could be a heavy subject--ethical choices and their repercussions--and lightens it. . . An enjoyable debut with a message."--Publishers Weekly
"Rollicking . . . A quick-witted insider's view of the blogosphere, media pandering, Internet privacy and the difficulty of being a good girl in a bad, bad world."--Kirkus Reviews
"Dishy, zingy, hilarious."--Glamour
"Grose offers an affectionate send-up of the slovenly blogger stereotype, creating a quick-witted heroine who lusts after egg sandwiches and takes comfort in an extravagantly stinky muumuu...delivered with Grose's appealing good humor...A sense of serendipity lingers over the adventures of new-media chick lit."--New Republic
