I was born in the early 50s, the second child of seven, in Madera Ca. We were a poor family and moved around a lot following the fruit, or we picked cotton in Oklahoma and Texas. I didn't start to write until later in my life, however I've always made up stories in my head for my own entertainment and to share with others. My husband encouraged me to write down one of my story, so I tried it and the stories came along so easy. Now I'm having such fun, writing Poems and short stories, and now even a few novels. I live in a small town outside of Salem Oregon and I'm married to a wonderful man; he's a musician and songwriter, an artist as well. We have two grown boys who have given us wonderful grandchildren. I have other hobbies; I raise a garden of flowers and vegetables, I quilt, do oil painting and I love to cook and make new receipts.

The Art Of Asking Your Boss For A Raise

RRP $22.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

A long-suffering employee in a big corporation has summoned up the courage to ask for a raise. But as he runs through the coming encounter in his mind, his neuroses come to the surface: What's the best day to see the boss? What if he doesn't offer you a seat when you go into his office? Would it be a smart move to ask about his daughter's illness?

Never previously published, Georges Perec's The Art of Asking Your Boss for a Raise is a hilarious account of an employee losing his identity and possibly his sanity as he tries to put on the most acceptable face for the corporate world, with its rigid hierarchies and hostility to ideas and innovation. If he follows a certain course of action, so this logic goes, he will succeed but, in accepting these conditions, are his attempts to challenge his world of work doomed from the outset?

Neurotic and pessimistic, yet endearing, comic and never less than entertaining, Perec's Woody Allen-esque underling presents an acute and penetrating vision of the world of office work, as pertinent today as it was when it was written in 1968.

About the Author

Georges Perec was one of the most important experimental writers of the twentieth century. His many works include the novels Life : A User's Manual and W, or The Memory of Childhood.
