Reward System

Jem Calder

Regular price $32.00

Jem Calder's Reward System is a set of ultra-contemporary and electrifyingly fresh fictions about a generation on the cusp, enmeshed in Zooms and lockdowns, loneliness and love.

Julia has landed a fresh start at an up-and-coming city restaurant.
"Imagine that," says her mother.
"I’m imagining."

Her ex-boyfriend Nick is flirting with sobriety and nobody else. Did you know that adults his age are more likely to live with their parents than with a romantic partner?

Life should have started to take shape by now—but instead we’re trying on new versions of ourselves, swiping left and right, searching for a good answer to the question "What do you do?"
