Work, Part 2

I like stories set in workplaces -- their peek behind the facade into normally restricted settings, their mirror to restricted parts of a person. (I'm a reader who'd welcome a novel that explores, for example, a character who finds accounting juicy.) Two recent workplace reads are David Gates's anthology Labor Days and Max Barry's corporate satire Company.

I also want to try the anthologies from Workers Write! whose annual themed issues have included stories from the Cubicle, the Classroom, and the Cash Register. I'm keeping the August 1 submission date in mind for this year's "Tales from the Clinic."
