Work-Life Balance by Aisha Franz


Work-Life Balance by Aisha Franz (Earthling, Shit Is Real) is a D+Q Work in Progress, to be published in Winter 2023.

Franz delivers an honest and comedic journey into the contemporary realities of work that is both absurd and observant. It’s a story about dreams and disappointments, about self-optimization and control, about power relations in the workplace all whilst not getting lost in the whole mess. Translated by Nicholas Houde. Acquiring editor Tom Devlin.
