In a razor-sharp and deeply felt novel that illuminates the role of work in our lives, This Could Hurt captures the emotional complexities of five colleagues trying to balance ambition, hope, and fear as their small company is buffeted by economic forces that threaten to upend them. Rosa Guerrero, the longtime chief of human resources, is the sun around whom Leo, Rob, Lucy, and Kenny orbit. When her world begins to crumble, they find themselves changed in ways beyond their reckoning.
