'A moving story of how easily a life can be submerged by work, and what it takes to regain one's soul' Oliver Burkeman, bestselling author of 
Four Thousand Weeks

What are you willing to sacrifice to get to the top?

What it might take to break free and leave it all behind?

Carrie Sun can't shake the feeling that she's wasting her life.

At twenty-nine, she's left her job, dropped out of an MBA program and is trapped in an unhappy engagement. So when she gets the opportunity to work at one of the most prestigious hedge funds in the world, she can't say no. Carrie is the sole assistant to the ¬firm's billionaire founder: she manages his work life, becomes his right hand and learns that money can solve nearly everything.

But amid the ultimate winners in our winner-take-all economy, Carrie soon¬ finds her identity swallowed whole. With her physical and mental health deteriorating, she begins to rethink what it actually means to waste one's life. A searing examination of our relationship to work, 
Private Equity is a universal tale of self-invention from a dazzling new voice.
