Personal Days: A Novel - new book

ISBN: 9780812978575

ID: 978081297857

In an unnamed New York-based company, the employees are getting restless as everything around them unravels. There’s Pru, the former grad student turned spreadsheet drone; Laars, the hysteric whose work anxiety stalks him in his tooth-grinding dreams; and Jack II, who distributes unwanted backrubs–aka “jackrubs”–to his co-workers.On a Sunday, one of them is called at home. And the Firings begin.Rich with Orwellian doublespeak, filled with sabotage and romance, this astonishing literary debut is at once a comic delight and a narrative tour de force. It’s a novel for anyone who has ever worked in an office and wondered: “Where does the time go? Where does the life go? And whose banana is in the fridge?”Praise for PERSONAL DAYS"Witty and appealing...Anyone who has ever groaned to hear ''impact'' used as a verb will cheer as Park skewers the avatars of corporate speak, hellbent on debasing the language....Park has written what one of his characters calls ''a layoff narrative'' for our times. As the economy continues its free fall, Park''s book may serve as a handy guide for navigating unemployment and uncertainty. Does anyone who isn''t a journalist think there can''t be two books on the same subject at the same time?
