Thousands of men enter the crystal palace yearly. In time they must make a choice: accept the numbing security of big corporation life or revolt against submission. Especially in times of economic upheaval, this book makes the reader question their fear of loosing a job at a large corporation. Will you silently suffer for a paycheck, or will you stand up against the monotony and dullness of cubicle life? Life in the Crystal Palce has been published in England, Germany, and Japan. V.S. Pritchett described the book as "a deeply ironical and polished analysis of the welfare corporations," and its author as "devastating in his gentleness."
