Six talented narrators perform this story of office dynamics and existential angst amid the 2008 financial crisis. At 64, Rosa Guerrero, HR chief for Ellery Consumer Research Group, faces health issues and looming retirement while dealing with another round of layoffs in her department. Though Rosa is the story's focal point, we also follow the careers and personal lives of several of her employees, Lucy Bender, Leo Smalls, Rob Hirsch, and Kenny Verville. Each narrator assumes a specific point of view that shows the same characters through a different lens, resulting in a captivating, though sometimes disorientating, RASHOMON effect among the cubicles and conference rooms. Office life can be a slog, but these narrators provide warmth and humor that will keep listeners invested. A.T.N. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2018]
