A brief clacking of typewriter keys introduces narrator Julia Whelan’s dynamic performance of OFFICE GIRL. Wielding a wide array of perky, monotone, sluggish, and animated voices, Whelan brings out the multifaceted personalities of quirky 20-something Odile and Jack as they struggle through meaningless jobs and relationships. Odile manages life’s mundane moments by defacing signage on busses; Jack records audio snippets of life on an old-fashioned tape recorder. Whelan’s impeccable timing, pacing, and command of the different characters make for a beguiling listening experience. Whelan emphasizes the ordinary and unique qualities of the characters and accentuates the freshness of this quixotic and unconventional story. M.F.
