Emma works in advertising.
Clem lives with her mum.
This is not where they thought they would be by the time their thirties loomed - too old to blag buses but too skint to take cabs. London budgets and bastards from the past spur Emma and Clem towards success, but it's not as easy as everyone else makes it look, right?
Living the Dream is a spiky comic novel of friendship, day jobs and the search for a career with meaning.
