New release! Julia has landed a fresh start―at a “pan-European” restaurant.
“Imagine that,” says her mother.
“I’m imagining.”

Nick is flirting with sobriety and nobody else. Did you know that adults his age are now 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 convincing answer to that question “What do you do?”

Jem Calder’s Reward System is a set of ultracontemporary and electrifyingly fresh fictions about work, relationships, and the strange loop of technology and the self. They are about a generation on the the story of two people enmeshed in Zooms and lockdowns, loneliness and love, devices and desires. Hyperaware but also deeply confused about who they are, Julia and Nick reveal the way we live now in a startling new light.
