Get Out meets The Stepford Wives meets The Devil Wears Prada.

Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagner Books. She's thrilled when Harlem born-and-bred Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. A string of uncomfortable events elevates Hazel to ‘Office Darling’, while Nella is left in the dust.

Then the notes begin to appear on Nella's desk: “LEAVE WAGNER. NOW.”

It's hard to believe Hazel is behind these hostile messages. But as Nella starts to spiral and obsess over the sinister forces at play, she soon realizes that there's a lot more at stake than just her career.

The Other Black Girl gives you a look into the publishing world. Having been lucky enough to visit the offices of the big five publishers she nails the interiors of their offices. It made me miss our publicity trips to New York for the store.  — John
