Another biting satire from Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, Authors of the #1 New York Times Bestseller The Nanny Diaries.

Working in a world where a college degree qualifies her to make photocopies and color-coordinate file folders, twenty-four year old Girl is struggling to keep up with the essential trinity of food, shelter, and student loans. So when she finally lands the job of her dreams she ignores her misgivings and concentrates on getting the job done...whatever that may be.

Sharply observed and devastatingly funny, Citizen Girl captures what it means to be young and female in the new economy. A personal glimpse into an impersonal world, Citizen Girl is edgy and heartfelt, an entertaining story that is startlingly relevant. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Ms. McLaughlin and Ms. Kraus have created a readable, lively book…an entertaining read that puts in perspective just how crazy all workplaces are. Whether they’re for profit or nonprofit, no one seems to know what they’re doing. And they certainly can’t communicate it to their underlings, much less the board of directors. That bit of social commentary in itself makes this book a welcome addition to its genre: instead of a decent husband, our heroine seeks a sane boss. Funny that they’re equally elusive.” 

    New York Sun

  • “The young authors have a knack for comedy, and there are priceless scenes here, some set at career fairs and in the halls of NYU, that will delight cubicle dwellers everywhere.” 

    Hampton Family Life

  • “[A] hyperventilating satire…witty and biting.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “McLaughlin and Kraus deftly satirize postfeminist, postmodern, twenty-first-century America, using management jargon and hipster slang with equal precision. More remarkable is the subtlety with which Girl’s story moves from the dreary-yet-familiar world of demanding bosses and unrewarding work into the realm of nightmares. The authors have conjured up a vision of America that’s just this side of dystopian, and their funhouse-mirror worldview generates its own strange suspense.”
