Goodbye to All That


Author:  Margo Candela
Publication Date:  July 13, 2010
Publisher:  Touchstone (Simon & Schuster)

Donated ByMargo Candela (the author)

"Margo Candela combines a cunning wit with a deep understanding of the office politics specific to the entertainment industry to create a frantic atmosphere and a near breathless momentum as the story barrels toward an ending that's anything but your focus grouped happy fade-out."  --Publishers Weekly

Raquel Azorian, 25, has worked her way from temp to executive assistant and is this close to a promotion to junior marketing exec at Belmore Corporation, the media behemoth she’s devoted herself to. She’s learned to play the Hollywood game while still keeping her skirt length to her knees and her pantyhose run free. All she needs is for her boss, a venerable marketing legend, to sign her promotion memo. Instead of putting pen to paper, he suffers a very public meltdown that puts not only his future at Belmore, but also Raquel’s on the line. 

It’s not just Raquel’s professional life that’s a mess, her whole family is in turmoil—Raquel’s mother has decided to leave her father and move in with her, her older brother has his own marital problems, and Raquel is forced to become the intermediary—all while trying to figure out how to save her job and not derail her office romance with the man of her dreams. A chance encounter in bookstore café with a toothsome star in the making provides Raquel with the perfect opportunity to climb the next rung on the Belmore ladder. Unfortunately for her, the clashing of her personal and professional life is making that rung hard to reach for.

When the chaos of juggling so many lives reaches a breaking point, Raquel realizes she’s going to have to choose—success at work or happiness at home. Whatever choice she makes, Raquel knows it going to cost her, but part of her is still pulling for her very own Hollywood ending.
