Martin Lukes: Who Moved My Blackberry?

 
9780141049793: Martin Lukes: Who Moved My Blackberry?

Martin Lukes is a superstar at the office and at home--just ask him. Blessed with an ego the size of Mount Everest and virtually no sense of self, he blusters through life with cheerful obliviousness.

Who Moved My BlackBerry? is the uproarious e-epistolary story of one spectacularly bad year in his life, during which Martin hires an executive coach to help him achieve "22.5 percent better than my bestest," only to inadvertently insult his new boss, watch his wife get a job that threatens to eclipse his own, and allow his BlackBerry--complete with racy e-mails to his secretary/lover--to fall into the hands of his juvenile delinquent son. This novel is set in an office so dysfunctional, it's bound to strike a chord with any nine-to-fiver. Comic schadenfreude at its best!

About the Author:

Lucy Kellaway is a regular columnist at the Financial Times of London. She created the character Martin Lukes in that column, the Financial Times' most popular.

From AudioFile:

Using email messages, this epistolary novel recounts the compulsions of Martin Lukes, the archetype of a self-absorbed, successful professional. Simon Vance has Martin's personality down cold in a spirited performance that takes Martin as seriously as he takes himself. Vance draws out Martin's superficially earnest tone when giving advice to subordinates, his dripping ambition in professional dealings, and his total ineptitude in personal interactions. Anna Fields provides delightful comic relief with her presentation of Martin's life coach, whose exercises for Martin and cheerleading aphorisms are as superficial as he is. Vance and Fields portray the fast pace of a corporate world dominated by Blackberries, with its shallow interactions and demands for instant gratification.
