Joanna dreams of being an author. But in 1990s New York, that is a difficult path to take. So, when she gets a job as assistant to literary agent Margaret, she is only too aware that she must seize this opportunity with both hands. She stays calm when the phones don’t stop ringing and deals confidently with her old-fashioned and stubborn boss. Everything in the agency seems to revolve around just one person - the ageing cult author J. D. Salinger, whose fan mail Joanna answers.

Film based on Joanna Rakoff's memoir of working for a New York literary agency is no Devil Wears Prada, pitched more to teens who dream of writing than to young professionals familiar with the publishing world.
