Summary
"Corinna Parks used to have big plans. While studying English Literature in college, she imagined writing a successful novel and leading the ideal life of an author. After graduation, she moved to a big city and took a job at an advertising agency--just to pay off her student loans--but now she's worked in the same office for five years and the only thing she's written is . . . copy. She longs for companionship (other than her cat), receives no satisfaction from her job, and feels numbed by the monotony of a life experienced through a series of screens. But whenever she shoplifts a magazine from the corner store near her apartment, she feels a little, what? A little more alive. Yet Corinna knows there must be something more to life, as she faces the question everyone of her generation is right now: how to find it?"--
