About this title:
Synopsis:
A startling work of fiction told through job application cover letters. Looking for work is an exercise in selling oneself. Cover letters are written listing the parts that one respects the least and the key selling points of the soul. The mistakes of the past are left unmentioned. Maybe sometimes something snaps and the writer reveals something completely new. In Overqualified the narrator's letters are funny and outrageous, but also moving too. Hopes and fears become the focus. And so he writes to HBO, ""I want a job fighting professional boxers on your cable network...

About the Author:
Joey Comeau writes the comic A Softer World, which has appeared recently in The Guardian and been profiled in Rolling Stone, and which Publisher's Weekly called, ""subtle and dramatic"". His self-published first novel, Lockpick Pornography, sold out its print run of 1000 books in just three months. In 2007 he published It's Too Late to Say I'm Sorry, a collection of short stories. The A Softer World website (asofterworld.com) has been online since 2003 and has an average daily readership of 70,000 people worldwide.
