- HOW TO TELL IF YOUR CO-WORKERS ARE FROM MARS & OTHER TALES OF THE WORKPLACE
- by Christina Hamlett
For all of those who have ever felt that their workaday world was peopled with snakes and flakes, this book offers a welcome affirmation: You Are Not Alone.
No corporate stone is left unturned in these mirthful essays about megalomaniac attorneys, gossip mavens, and requisite Old Guys who look like Grandpa Munster and seemingly serve no useful purpose in the hierarchy but to take up space. Based on her own experiences as a legal secretary, office supervisor, and published writer, the author strikes a familiar chord with her humorous observations about the angst of interviews, the quirks of coworkers, and the stress of directing the Office Christmas Talent Show with an office that had - well, no perceptible talent whatsoever.
A must-read for anyone who has ever had to work for a living.
- New York in the Fifties
- by Greenpoint Press
While Allen Ginsberg howled that the best minds of his generation were being destroyed by madness, Wakefield, who lived in the same town, was high on just being there, on making it as a freelance writer if not yet as a novelist, on the camaraderie he found in Greenwich Village, on hanging around with James Baldwin, Vance Bourjaily, Norman Mailer, Seymour Krim, John Gregory Dunne, Gay Talese, William Buckley and other "writer writers" who would later become our eminences grises of letters. Wakefield had fled Indianapolis in 1952 to study at Columbia; yet eight years later, "all scratched out," he would flee New York City--and end up in Boston, permanently. This is his memoir of '50s Manhattan, a charmed, gentle, evocative re-creation of a time when sex was more talked about than done (and when done, was done in secret), a time when psychoanalysis was hailed as the new religion, booze was the soporific, Esquire and the Village Voice the journalistic pacesetters, jazz the music. Then the atmosphere changed: McCarthyism hovered, Timothy Leary came around with the "cure-all elixir" psilocybin, the Beatles landed. Wakefield, whose novels include Home Free , has written his generation's kinder-spirited Moveable Feast , marking his era as a cultural divide.Litterateurs will treasure the book. So will aspirants. --From Publishers Weekly
