The Glitch

Priorities. The protagonist of Elizabeth Cohen’s debut novel titled, The Glitch, is not an everywoman. Shelley Stone is a Silicon Valley CEO who seems to have mastered the elements of a successful life. As CEO, she is ready to travel around the globe at any time. As wife, she schedules sex for efficiency. As mother, she gets her daughter the best care possible. Sounds like a normal life, right? Cohen uses tension and humor to shake up Shelley’s life, including introducing a younger woman with the same name, and injecting a corporate crisis that tests Shelley’s mettle. Shelley has to reset her priorities and decide what is most important in her life. If Bernie Sanders reads novels, he would have a lot to say about this portrayal of the top 1% of the 1%. The rest of us can read and enjoy this clever and funny novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Glitch from
