The Glitch by Elisabeth Cohen—a hilarious story about working motherhood, tech culture, and “having it all.”

the-glitch-elisabeth-cohen.jpg

The Glitch is the story of a high-profile, TED-talking, power-posing Silicon Valley CEO and mother of two who has it all under control, until a woman claiming to be a younger version of herself appears, causing a major glitch in her over-scheduled, over-staffed, over-worked life.

Shelley Stone, wife, mother, and CEO of the tech company Conch, is committed to living her most efficient life. She takes her "me time" at 3:30 a.m. on the treadmill, power naps while waiting in line, schedules sex with her husband for when they're already changing their clothes, and takes a men's multivitamin because she refuses to participate in her own oppression. But when she meets a young woman also named Shelley Stone who also has the exact same scar on her shoulder, Shelley has to wonder: Is she finally buckling under all the pressure? 

Now available from Doubleday!

Buy The Glitch at your favorite independent bookstore or from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, Powells, Target, Books-a-Million, Hudson Booksellers, or Walmart

Praise for The Glitch

“An ambitious and entertaining novel that centers on Shelley Stone, the chief executive of a fictional company… Cohen is a shrewd writer.”
—Stephanie Danler, The New York Times Book Review

The Glitch takes a hard look at the definition of work-life balance. Through hilarious antics and sensational story lines, Elisabeth Cohen encourages readers to slow down, take a breath and consider the perspective of a younger you. Would that person think you are living your best life?”
—Lincee Ray, The Washington Post

“Razor-sharp…a hilarious send-up of tech culture and the notion of women ‘having it all.'”
—Mackenzie Dawson, The New York Post

“Sometimes you read a book because it sounds really good, but then it turns out to be way, way more strange, original and thrilling than even claimed, and that’s what happened for me with Elisabeth Cohen’s The Glitch.” 
—Elizabeth McKenzie, author of The Portable Veblen

"Elisabeth Cohen has given us one of the most unforgettable characters in recent fiction. Shelley Stone is a workaholic CEO who is 'leaning in' so far she might just be losing her mind. This debut is a smart and delirious ride through a world of TED Talks, tech startups and efficiency junkies. I tore through The Glitch with delight!"
—Jennifer Close, author of Girls in White Dresses and The Hopefuls
 
"Shelley Stone is a genius comic creation and her story—one where she's struck by lightning, drives a potentially haunted car, and meets her doppelganger—is as madcap as it is fabulously relatable. She's a spreadsheet-crunching, yoga-practicing, flexitarian CEO over-achiever who is so utterly hilarious I couldn’t help but love her."
—Lucy Sykes, author of The Knockoff and Fitness Junkie
