Welcome To The Working Week Summary

Welcome To The Working Week by Paul Vlitos

Meet Martin Sargent. He hasn't got a girlfriend (not anymore, anyway); he hasn't got a flatmate (see point one) and he definitely hasn't got the gift of tact. But he has got his mates (against all odds), an office crush and a mum who wants him to welcome Jesus into his life. But most pressing of all - Martin's got a disciplinary meeting for improper use of work email...A frank, hilarious and oh-my-god-that's-me look at life and love, all seen through the unforgiving crucible of modern life...the email account.

Welcome To The Working Week Reviews

'He [Vlitos] astutely observes the way that many people communicate these days... Vlitos's writing style has an easy comic touch' NEW STATESMAN 'Paul Vlitos is a witty writer, and this, his first novel is curiously gripping' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Funny, written in a nice variety of voices, and reads very easily indeed. I'm glad I picked it up.' DAILY SPORT 'Within a couple of hours this book was devoured by two housemates and we can safely say that this book is one that you can't put down, and realistic enough to have you chuckling to yourself' CUB - QUEEN MARY'S UNIVERSITY OF LONDON 'A brilliantly funny satire of the workplace and of emails in particular. Martin Sargent is up for a disciplinary hearing for improper use of his email account, and his trials and tribulations are, in turns, toe-curlingly embarrassing and laugh-out-loud hilarious.' BOOKSELLER

About Paul Vlitos

Paul Vlitos was born in 1979. To avoid working in an office that would make the inside of head itch, Paul moved to Japan, where he teaches. WELCOME TO THE WORKING WEEK is his first novel. Considerably more conscientious than his characters, he has yet to send his publishers any inappriopriate emails.
