Spotlight and Giveaway: Andrea Hoffman Goes All In

We are pleased to kick off September with Diane Cohen Schneider's debut novel, Andrea Hoffman Goes All In. Take a trip to the career world of the 1980s with this wild new story. Thanks to BookSparks, we have TWO copies to give away!

Andrea Hoffman is an overeducated, underemployed, and unmotivated recent college graduate—until an unexpected robbery blasts her out of her funk and into a job in the finance world of early-1980s Chicago. At first, it seems like a bad fit. But the world of finance has its own weird charm, and she grows increasingly fascinated by the strange language of trading, the complexity of the stock market, and her colleagues, who navigate it all with a ruthless confidence. Even though she has two strikes against her—Jewish and female—Andrea’s quick wit and strong work ethic propel her into an actual sales job and her career takes off. 

But this is the Wall Street of the eighties, and along with making a lot more money, Andrea adopts a new, fast life of cocktails, cocaine, and casual sex. Drunk on her achievements, she gradually realizes that at some point, she’s going to have to decide what success really means to her.

“Diane Cohen Schneider’s new book, Andrea Hoffman Goes All In, is laugh-out-loud funny and sharp. Set in the 80s, this story is a timeless look at the relationship we have with our jobs. It explores how work may do more than reflect who we are—it may shape who we become.”
—Madeleine Henry, author of Breathe In, Cash Out and The Love Proof

 “Ms. Cohen Schneider evokes both the ebullience and the excess of that era [1980s], all the while charming the reader with her heroine’s trajectory through her twenties. I found myself rooting for her, sympathizing with her, and fondly remembering my own less-than-straight path through life. An engaging coming-of-age story that will appeal to all ages.”
—Deborah Goodrich Royce, award-winning author of Ruby Falls and Finding Mrs. Ford
