In an unnamed New York-based company, the employees are getting restless as everything around them unravels. There's Pru, the former grad student turned spreadsheet drone; Laars, the hysteric whose work anxiety stalks him in his tooth-grinding dreams; and Jack II, who distributes unwanted backrubs-aka "jackrubs"-to his co-workers. On a Sunday, one of them is called at home. And the Firings begin. Rich with Orwellian doublespeak, filled with sabotage and romance, this astonishing literary debut is at once a comic delight and a narrative tour de force. It's a novel for anyone who has ever worked in an office and wondered: "Where does the time go? Where does the life go? And whose banana is in the fridge?" "If P. G. Wodehouse worked in a modern-day office, he might have written this hilarious book." -Vendela Vida, author of "Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name " "The funniest book I've read about the way we work now." -William Poundstone, author of "Fortune's Formula" "With Personal Days Ed Park joins Andy Warhol and Don DeLillo as a master of the deadpan vernacular." -Helen DeWitt, author of "The Last Samurai" "The ideal read for anyone who has ever felt possessive about a stapler, confused by their boss's behavior, or suspicious of the stranger who works two cubicles down." ----Amanda Filipacchi, author of "Love Creeps " "If you think Pam and Jim have it bad, try spending a day with Lizzie, Jonah, and Pru at their '"Office"'-like company. You'll laugh, cringe, and thank God you don't work there." ---- "Cosmopolitan" "Hysterical" -"Wired" " [Park's] sardonic humor will ring true to cube monkeys everywhere." -"Fast Company" " " "A warm and winning fiction debut." -- "Publishers Weekly" "Absolutely brilliant and lovable." -Heidi Julavits
