Sweetbitter meets The Firm in this buzzy, page-turning debut novel—already optioned to Netflix—about sex and power in the halls of corporate America.  One of Buzzfeed's Most Anticipated Books of 2020, Cosmopolitan's Best Summer Reads of 2020, and New York Post's 30 Best Summer Books.


Alex Vogel has always been a high achiever.  Accepting a dream offer at a prestigious Manhattan law firm she promises her sweet and supportive longtime boyfriend that the job won’t change her.  Yet Alex is seduced by the firm’s money and energy.  As her clients’ expectations and demands on her increase, she begins to question everything—including herself. She knows that reaching the top means playing by different rules. But who made those rules? And what if the system is rigged so that women can’t win, anyway?


Erica Katz is the pseudonym for a graduate of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and Columbia Law School who began her career at a major Manhattan law firm.
