About this Item

180 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.7in. x 0.5in.Cubicle Cowboy is a bawdy satire about losing ones identity in American corporate culture. The protagonist is so thoroughly brainwashed by the corporate behemoth that he cannot even remember his name at the end of the story. His only vestige of self-consciousness is his employee badge number: 65436. Our hero labors day in and day out, drowning in the monotony of his cubicle culture. In order to ward off insanity, his personal life grows more and more outrageous as he attempts to prove to himself that he is something more than a cog in the machine. He becomes romantically involved with a mysterious and troubled co-worker; he acquires a stripper roommate and drama ensues; he takes physically taxing (and profoundly bibulous) overnight vacations to Mexico and New Orleans. And all of these scenes are transparent attempts to prove that he is alive, which his cubicle and his headset and the absurd bureaucracy of his employer are striving to refute eighty hours per week. . . This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781411640559

About this title

Synopsis:

Cubicle Cowboy is a bawdy satire about losing one's identity in American corporate culture. The protagonist is so thoroughly brainwashed by the corporate behemoth that he cannot even remember his name at the end of the story. His only vestige of self-consciousness is his employee badge number: 65436. Our hero labors day in and day out, drowning in the monotony of his cubicle culture. In order to ward off insanity, his personal life grows more and more outrageous as he attempts to prove to himself that he is something more than a cog in the machine. He becomes romantically involved with a mysterious and troubled co-worker; he acquires a stripper roommate and drama ensues; he takes physically taxing (and profoundly bibulous) overnight vacations to Mexico and New Orleans. And all of these scenes are transparent attempts to prove that he is alive, which his cubicle and his headset and the absurd bureaucracy of his employer are striving to refute eighty hours per week...

About the Author:

The Reverend J. Metzger is a man of the cloth and a gentleman rogue. His fondest memories include masterminding a jailbreak in Cuba, rendezvousing with history's most infamous ex-CIA agent, being chased through the streets of Madrid by a rabid knifeman while puffing a cigar, manifold and miscellaneous sordid Mexican misadventures, and that time when Fidel Castro tried to run him over in his car. At home in Austin, Mr. Metzger enjoys quiet mornings of writing and reading, pastoral afternoons at the park with his elusive Hungarian Vizsla, and evenings teeming with the frenzied scheming of future escapades.
