Reissue of the funniest book of 2000: two weeks in an advertising agency trying to land the Coca-Cola account, told in office emails. e is a tapestry of insincerity, backstabbing and bare-faced bitchiness -- just everyday office politics. Meet: A CEO with an MBA from the Joseph Stalin School of Management A director who is a genius, if only in his own head Creatives with remarkable brains, if only in their trousers A copywriter with the two things an adwoman should never let show -- underarm hair and a conscience Consisting entirely of emails, e spends a few weeks with Miller Shanks as it attempts to land the holy grail of advertising, the account the staff would sell their collective grandmothers to acquire. This is one pitch that nobody will ever forget...
Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
'A brilliantly plotted comic novel about life in an advertising agency, narrated entirely through office emails. It gives me more sense that literature is alive and kicking than anything else I've read in these millennial 12 months.' Humphrey Carpenter, Sunday Times Review of the Year 'Lively, viciously funny and about as switched on as a novel can be' Mirror 'Hilarious' Cosmopolitan 'A genuinely enjoyable page-turner' The Times 'e is the most enjoyable, addictive read I've had since Bridget Jones' Lisa Jewell 'Here's a book that recognises our true priorities: blame-shifting, arse-covering, personal enhancement, shagging -- and, oh yes, the odd advert. Matt compresses into a few weeks a dazzling cascade of events, most of which have either happened at one agency or another or are otherwise completely believable. A finer observer of agency politics you'll never meet.' Andrew Cracknell, Campaign 'Depicts the Machiavellian scheming and summary sackings of the ad world in withering detail and with no shortage of dead-eye wit' The Times 'Groundbreaking...an internet-enabled Clarissa for the 21st century' Evening Standard 'Hysterical, sensationally funny' Arena 'Read it, wipe away your tears, then read it again' Company 'Fab debut...lock eyes with Matt Beaumont. Your career may depend on it' Kirkus
