Cubicleland: A Novel
There's a story in every cubicle.
When changes at work threaten to upend their lives, a ragtag group of coworkers has to decide how far they’re willing to stick their necks out for each other in this funny, heartfelt, and occasionally satirical story of camaraderie in the modern workplace.
Luke Belmont is a nice guy at the bottom of the corporate ladder and updating documentation for old software isn’t exactly a straight shot to senior management. Connie, the grizzled programmer in the next cubicle, has been working on the same software for decades. He just wants to stay off the executive radar.
Unfortunately, the corporate agenda is about to steamroll over everyone’s hopes and plans.
A thoughtful and entertaining novel about the people who spend their days navigating the land of cubicles. Run the numbers, leverage some synergies, and pay a visit to Cubicleland.
