About Book

Mimosa MacAroon, Vladimir Logoff and Claire Twinsett; just a few of the hilariously contrived characters set the scene for this well thought out novel based on ‘office politics'.

The career path of Outi Pickering and her experience as a librarian gives an excellent insight into multi-tiered management. Add to this a clever tongue-in-cheek observation of people and we have a very entertaining novel.

The ability to turn a mundane event - such as pigeons on the window sill, ordering and delivery of stationery goods and requisites - will have you identifying these same issues at some point in your years of employment. A simple theme but expanded into an excellent comedy. The recipe? A touch of ‘Faulty Towers', a teaspoon of ‘The Office', and a bit of ‘Open All Hours'. Ah, bliss!
