At the point when her difficult to-please manager doles out her to a best mystery battle that sets abstract creators with enterprises hungry for upmarket cachet, Casey is both energized and distrustful. Be that as it may, as she bungles America, charming her previous symbols, she’s stunned at how rapidly they trade off their uprightness: A short-story essayist leaves the scholarly community to create crusades for a larger size dress chain, a hermitic nature author transfers ownership of her all consuming purpose to a producer of granola bars.
When she begins to look all starry eyed at one of her creators, Casey can never again overlook her own pestering questions about the human cost of her prosperity.
