About this product
- DescriptionWe all kw how it works: first you go to School, then you go to University, and then you enter Real Life. And that's the important bit. Real Life is about achievement, recognition, choices. It's about a boss who trusts you, a wardrobe that suits you, friends who support you and a relationship that fulfills you. It's a mobile phone, an expense account, a company car and a place to park it. Happily Ever After. Unfortunately, Real Life isn't working that way for The Temp. She's managed the university bit, but the job, the dough and the happily-ever-after seem harder than anybody ever told her. Living in Stockwell while she moves through a series of jobs ranging from the horrifying mindless to the bemusingly witless to the simply extraordinary, she realises that something isn't right. Who cares about a boss who trusts you? She'd settle for a boss who kws her name. This can't be Real Life, can it? Building on the success of her Independent column, Serena Mackesy has created a wonderfully witty, acerbic expose of office anthropology and a genuinely moving story about the early-twenties doldrums.
