Description
A long-suffering employee in a big corporation has summoned up the courage to ask for a raise, in this experimental novel by the author of Life: A User's Manual. 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? And should you ask that tricky question about his daughter's illness? Neurotic and pessimistic, yet comedic and engaging, Georges Perec's Woody Allen-esque underling presents an acute and penetrating vision of the world of office work, finally available in English and as pertinent today as it was when it was written in 1968.

"Perec's novels are games, each different. They are played for real stakes and in some cases breathtakingly large ones. As games should be, and as literary games often are not, they are fun."LATimes
