Shop Girl Diaries

(2009)
A non fiction book by

 
 
This is the book, which began as a blog, which also became a short film. Emily Benet is a writer, trapped in the body of a shop girl, working in a shop. Her comic world is made up of shoppers, suitors and chandeliers. There's also a window cleaner that really gets on her nerves, a vomiting dog and a ridiculous amount of doughnuts.

The independent lighting shop is the co-star of this tale, as mother and daughter try to close down but just can't seem to manage it due to a loyal following of colourful and bizarre customers. Till-side accounts of the general public's desire for retail therapy and light switches form the backdrop to Benet's well-lit tour of the credit crunch.
Emily Benet's writing is simultaneously bittersweet, laugh out loud funny and impossibly moreish. If you've ever worked in retail, or with the general public, you're going to love this book.

The kindle version of Shop Girl Diaries comes with a never seen before epilogue.
