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.


“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
