Stella Bradberry and Bella Chambers work for AtlanticEnergy, a global oil company in London. Bella is a prettysingle mother who dropped out of college and is doomed towork as an invisible assistant to a series of men of half her intelligence.Stella is twenty years older, about to get a seat onthe board, and is the original no-glass-ceiling, high-achieving,multi-tasking mother of two. Everyone admires her; she's sostraightforward and sensible. So what possesses both women toembark on pole-axing, heart-wrenching affairs with men theywouldn't have looked at twice outside the office?
Smart, funny, moving and agonizing, In Office Hoursholds up a mirror to modern corporate life. It's all here--thelies and sabotage, the strutting lunacy of CEOs, men's choice ofsandwiches, women's choice of affair underwear, taking creditfor others' ideas, the building and crashing of egos . . . and theobsessive, dangerous conduct of work colleagues who, in thegrip of passion, break all the rules.
