Bob Slocum is anxious, bored and fearful of his job. So why is it he wants nothing more than the chance to speak at the next company convention? In this darkly satirical book, Joseph Heller takes us for a turn on the maddening hamster wheel of work. Heller's workplace is a cradle of paranoia, bravado and nauseating banter, forever shadowed by that perennial question, who's really running the show here? In Heller's hands, our daily grind has never seemed so absurd. Selected from the book Something Happened by Joseph Heller VINTAGE MINIS: GREAT MINDS. BIG IDEAS. LITTLE BOOKS. A series of short books by the world's greatest writers on the experiences that make us human Also in the Vintage Minis series: Drinking by John Cheever Swimming by Roger Deakin Liberty by Virginia Woolf Death by Julian Barnes
