Apprentice to the Flower Poet Z. by Debra Weinstein

In Apprentice to the Flower Poet Z., Annabelle Goldsmith, an aspiring poet, is hired to be an assistant to Professor Z., famous for her feminist flower poems. Annabelle is hoping to learn poetry and wisdom under Z's mentoring, but instead only learns of Z's scandalous secrets and professional tyranny. Treated more like a servant than an assistant, Annabelle spends all her time protecting Z's "psychic space" instead of writing poetry. When her mentor becomes tormentor and commits an egregious betrayal, it's time for Annabelle to exact her revenge. Debra Weinstein's debut novel has received positive reviews with the San Francisco Chronicle saying, "Weinstein captures the essence of the low-paying, insular world of poetry and carefully crafts a pedagogic nemesis who wears slinky dresses rather than tattered tweed. Despite beautifully obscure literary references, Apprentice will still have appeal for anyone who has suffered from the indignities of a boss from hell."
