But for the protagonist of this novel, it is a declaration of war, a call to arms: The new secretary has only been here two days, she says, and Im already talking about evil, a word I shouldnt even be using--arming myself for battle and choosing my weapons.

Her quiet life of sacrifice and service has been rudely disrupted by the new hire, and she is not--despite the advice of her doctor, her neighbors, and her daughter--about to leave it at that. Instead, sabotage, alcohol, and kindness become the arsenal in a conflict fought across copy rooms and office parties.

But the humor is undercut by a sadness, a sense of defeat that makes this slim novel resonate with the injustice of our increasingly impersonal, corporate world.
