About the Author:

Helen DeWitt is the author of a “remarkable first novel” (Daniel Mendelsohn, New York Review of Books), The Last Samurai, which has been translated into twenty languages. She lives in Berlin.

Review:

“A tightly disciplined and extremely funny satire on office politics, sexual politics, American politics, and the art of positive thinking.”
- The Guardian

“A razor-sharp comic masterpiece.”
- Financial Times

“Dewitt maintains a strong, clear, narrative voice throughout, pitch-perfectly parodying management speak, corporate culture and self-help bibles.”
- The Independent

“An absurdist comedy of the American workplace and the indignities faced by employees in today's turbo-capitalism, a quietly seething feminist critique of pornography and the commodification of women, and a category-defying fable about the meaninglessness of success.”
- Telegraph
