Working Girls: Money, Power and Love is an Indie entry into the growing Working Girl Lit genre which has had huge successes like Lauren Weisberger’s The Devil Wears Prada (2003) and Jennifer Weiner’s The Next Best Thing (2012). Working Girls is set in a fictional Fortune 100 Company from about 1990 to the present. In the story, the four heroines’ careers take divergent paths. One climbs the corporate ladder and competes for the CEO position, another quits to launch an entrepreneurial venture, a third decides to start a family, and the fourth enters into an adulterous relationship with her boss.
