Downsized is a fast-paced story with multiple plot linesthat keep the pages turning.Even though newspapers everywhere are cutting staff, there'snothing for Quade O'Bric to worry about: The publisher is a pal of his.When he's not at work, Quade spends most of his time at his favoritewatering holes. So what if he's a little out of shape? He's got his dreamjob as a columnist. Doesn't see his family too much, but he is a goodprovider, and surely that's enough?It might have been enough, if not for a devious manager whoschemes to deny Quade a promotion, and boot him out of the companyas well. When the ruse works, Quade finds himself unexpectedly out onthe street. Turning over every rock in his search for a new job, Quadeuncovers more than a few slimy surprises.Despite his many faults, you will wind up rooting for Quade O'Bric, especially as he sets out to right wrongs along the way. And when hestops looking for a replacement paycheck, and starts building a real life, it just may bethat getting Downsized was the best thing thatever happened to him.Ed McNeill finally started living his dream ofwriting novels after he became so disabled byALS that just about the only thing he could stilldo was tap out one letter at a time on a keyboard
