If you enjoyed the movie Office Space (which you should see if you haven't!) you'll enjoy this story set in a Chicago ad agency as it is being forced to downsize itself out of existence. You can be a fly-on-the-wall to the gossipy intrigue among the staff of rather cynical "creatives" as they plot to avoid layoffs. The pressure is on for them then, to come up with the winning idea for a pro bono ad campaign about breast cancer that is funny and will cheer up the victims. The author manages to present multi-dimensional characters, that could be just caricatures, and infuses sad situations with a wry humor. Maybe not great lit, but perceptive writing about the challenges of being a human being in a modern corporate environment. Highly recommended! ~ Reviewed by Heather Bellanca
