Praise

"Ms. van der Kwast manages to elevate her version of chick lit by adding cleverness and social observation."
The Wall Street Journal


“Great fun! For anyone whose life didn’t pan out exactly as she’d planned in high school.”
—Robyn Harding, Author of THE JOURNAL OF MORTIFYING MOMENTS


“Sarah Pelletier is looking for the Right One — the right job, that is! Those who empathized with Kinsella’s Shopaholic will feel for Sarah Pelletier as she navigates the world of dodgy interviews and bizarre temp jobs, armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of film and an infinitely variable resume. With a knack for an apt analogy, van der Kwast paints the plight of the liberal arts major in search of a job with painful accuracy.”
—Lauren Willig, Author of THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE PINK CARNATION


“Jennifer van der Kwast’s debut novel captures the cruel and intoxicating lure of single life in Manhattan with originality and wit. Painfully funny, Pounding the Pavement will leave you laughing out loud.”
—Karen Quinn, Author of THE IVY CHRONICLES


“Pounding the Pavement is a clever, funny novel that takes you for a walk on the ridiculous side of two of life’s big challenges. If you’ve ever had a nightmarish boss or a lousy date, this book is for you.”
—Delphine Hirsh, Author of THE GIRLS’ GUIDE TO SURVIVING A BREAKUP


“A funny, witty look at one woman’s tireless search for a job, a soul mate, and most of all, herself.  A terrific debut!”
—Alison Pace, Author of IF ANDY WARHOL HAD A GIRLFRIEND
