Office GirleBook - 2012
"Best-selling novelist Joe Meno is back with fantastic new novel about two young people and a visionary, doomed art movement. NO ONE DIES IN OFFICE GIRL. Nobody talks about the international political situation. There is no mention of any economic collapse. Nothing takes place during a World War. INSTEAD, THIS NOVEL IS ABOUT YOUNG PEOPLE doing interesting things in the final moments of the last century. Odile is a lovely twenty-three-year-old art-school dropout, a minor vandal, and a hopeless dreamer. Jack is a twenty-five-year-old shirker who's most happy capturing the endless noises of the city on his out-of-date tape recorder. Together they decide to start their own art movement in defiance of a contemporary culture made dull by both the tedious and the obvious. Set in February 1999-just before the end of one world and the beginning of another-Office Girl is the story of two people caught between the uncertainty of their futures and the all-too-brief moments of modern life."-- Provided by publisher.
