A hilarious debut novel about life, love, and the pursuit of leisure
Jane Cooper is a different kind of New York woman. Charmingly unambitious in workaholic New York City, Jane believes that until corporate life was unfairly glamorized in propaganda” films of the 1980s such as Working Girl, there were more people like her: connoisseurs of leisure. Still, a girl does have to pay the rent, so Jane finds a corporate job that supports her lifestyle. Unaware that her cute, hipster boss Ray just put his neck on the line to keep her from being fired, she and her best friend, Rebecka, take off on possibly the worst timed vacation. When Jane finds out that her commitment to slacking may be causing real world problems, she springs into action, putting even Joan Collins’s character in Dynasty to shame to save her job, her company, her friendship, and her heart. Fun, edgy, and starring an irresistible heroine, this is a book for every working girl (and slacker) who has ever wanted to step outside the corporate box.

ALEXANDRA KOSLOW graduated Kutztown University with a bachelorÂ's degree in fine arts, with a concentration in photography. Slacker Girl is her first novel. She has worked in advertising, mixology (aka, bartending), and publishing.From Publishers Weekly:
Jane Cooper is a New Yorker committed to leisure: even though she has a job in client relations at a financial firm, she makes a point of spending her weekday mornings hanging out and doing embroidery while pretending to be in client meetings. When Rebecka, Jane's rich best friend, offers to take her to an expensive South Beach resort to help mend Rebecka's broken heart, Jane doesn't hesitate. She's unaware, however, of what her failure to do her job really means for others-at her company, and beyond. After epithet-studded heartache talk, makeovers and barhopping, it turns out that Jane really does care about something other than hanging out. Koslow's adept, entertaining debut manages, to the surprise of narrator Jane, to celebrate the good that comes from committing to work and love.
