Fiction • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

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.
