Editorial Reviews


"Return on Investment is a coming-of-age tale unlike any I have ever read. A quartet of unlikely friends massively in debt and interminably adrift in the post-collegiate, post-recession, start-up economy. The wild scheme that joins them together somehow manages to both satirize and sympathetically explore that wobbling time between youth and adulthood. Swiftly told, at turns hilarious and poignant, Return on Investment is worth every second you put into it." David McGlynn, author of A Door in the Ocean "A wickedly smart, deceptively powerful debut novel about the uneasy intersection of love and commerce. A soaring send-up of the post-grad economy. War's debut will appeal to fans of Maria Semple, Jess Walter, and Lena Dunham." Michelle Richmond, New York Times bestselling author of The Year of Fog "Waz's darkly comic first novel reads like the birth of a brand-new genre-call it literature of the dystopian present-wherein a lost generation of post-college twentysomethings struggle against debt, doubt, the loneliness of a constantly-connected world, and an out-of-control gig economy that leads to work as professional cuddlers, human breast pumps, and black-market milk runners. It'd be terrifying if it weren't so damn funny, prescient if it weren't precisely of the moment, absurd except for its searing recognition of the all-too-real . . . Return on Investment is an audacious, ambitious debut. -Joseph Bates, author of Tomorrowland: Stories "In Return on Investment, Magdalena Waz brings to vivid life the mighty struggles and Millennial triumphs of a group of young Chicagoans graduating into the Great Recession. Waz's writing is slyly ironic, her characters' delightfully inappropriate first jobs, including human breast pump, are shrewdly presented, and their stories are irresistible. This is a superb first book." -Eric Goodman, author of Child of My Right Hand and Twelfth and Race
