WIN ‘Hard Copy’ by Fien Veldman

This week, we’re giving away three copies of Hard Copy by Fien Veldman. Hard Copy is a compelling workplace novel about a girl whose growing obsession with her office printer highlights the monotony and mental strain of corporate life, blending witty, unhinged narration with insightful commentary on the nature of modern work. Here’s the blurb:

A customer service assistant spends her long workdays printing letters. Her one friend is the printer and, in the dark confines of her office, she begins to open up to him, talking about her fears, her past, her hopes and dreams.

To her, it seems like a beautiful friendship is blossoming. To her boss, it seems like she's losing her mind.

Diagnosed with burnout and placed on leave, she faces severance and – worse – separation from her beloved printer. But she's not about to give up on her only friend without a fight. And, it turns out, neither is he…

Weird, incisive and unforgettable, Hard Copy is perfect for fans of Sayaka Murata and Halle Butler.
