   Who said office life is not a good topic for a novel?

this book humorously and poignantly depicted the humdrum office life… a lot of laugh out loud stories about trivial, trite and inane stuff we do at work..moving and poignant tales of loneliness, desperation, forgiveness

characters who I relate to and made me think of people in my work life

one good read…

just a little reminder to myself…
