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

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!
