Hijinks galore among the deliriously funny ad men and women in this electronic epistolary novel

e's wickedly hilarious crew from the Miller Shanks Ad Agency is back with more office shenanigans. The staff has moved on to Meerkat360, a sleek and self-consciously hip boutique agency, where they are joined by a fresh cast of industrial-strength nutjobs. Through e-mails, texts, and blog entries they pitch ad campaigns—Estée Lauder's new Margaret Thatcher perfume, anyone?—mangle love lives, and barely navigate office and family politics.

Armed with the acid wit of e upgraded with the full arsenal of modern cyber tools, e2 leaves you rolling on your cubicle floor and snorting vile vending-machine coffee out of your nostrils.
