BECAUSE SHE CAN is an insider's no-holds-barred take on the book publishing world, is an outrageously funny, revealing novel about a woman who lands her dream job in book publishing � until she realizes that she's working for the industry's most notorious tyrant. Claire Truman's life has fallen into a holding pattern. She's been languishing away at a top New York publishing house, patiently waiting to be promoted and stretching her ridiculously small salary as far as it can go. Then, in just one night, Claire's life drastically changes. Fresh from an ugly breakup, she is dragged to a party and bumps into her crush from college: the legendarily hot Randall Cox, a man with friends in high places. When a high-powered publisher at a rival company calls her the next morning, Claire suddenly finds herself with a job worth three times her old salary. Unfortunately, her new boss, Vivian Grant, is even worse than industry gossip has led Claire to believe. From middle-of-the-night phone calls and over-the-top tantrums, Vivian piles on the work�and the abuse. Now, as Claire's new job demands more and more of her time and soul, will Randall Cox remain her Prince Charming?
