The New Me by Halle Butler

ISBN: 9781474612296

11.60

In a windowless office, a woman explains something from her real, nonwork life – about the frustration and indignity of returning her online shopping – to her colleagues. One wears a topknot. Another checks her pedometer. Watching them all is Millie. Thirty-years-old and an eternal temp, she says almost nothing, almost all of the time. But then the possibility of a permanent job arises. Will it bring the new life Millie is envisioning – one involving a gym membership, a book club, and a lot less beer and TV – finally within reach? Or will it reveal just how hollow that vision has become? ‘Funny, shocking, clever, and hugely entertaining’ Roddy Doyle.
