Book Launch: Jillian Medoff presents This Could Hurt
In conversation with Julie Klam
Wine reception to follow
Jillian Medoff, author of the bestselling novel I Couldn’t Love You More, presents This Could Hurt, an ambitious new novel of work and life in the spirit of Joshua Ferris’s Then We Came to the End and Walter Kirn’s Up in the Air. This Could Hurt captures the emotional complexities of five HR colleagues trying to balance ambition, hope, and fear at the Ellery Consumer Research company. Compelling, flawed, and heartbreakingly human, these men and women scheme, fall in and out of love, and nurture dreams big and small – even as their small company is buffeted by economic forces that threaten to upend them. Authentic, razor-sharp, and achingly funny, This Could Hurt is a novel about work, loneliness, love, and loyalty; about sudden reversals and unexpected windfalls; a novel about life. Medoff launches her new novel in conversation with Julie Klam, author of The Stars in Our Eyes, followed by a Q&A and signing.
