about

Brian Lembeck - ''Pulpy'' - takes life slow and steady. He likes his office job, and he likes his gentle, figurine-collecting boss, Al. He even likes the bitter receptionist, though he''s the only one who does. He likes his wife, Midge, too, and their ice-dancing lessons. Midge works as a candle-party hostess - she quit her office job when Al''s dog ate her pet pigeon and Al promised Pulpy a promotion.

But when Al retires and the tyrannical Dan takes over, the promotion vanishes. And then Dan''s oversexed wife, Beatrice, takes a shine to Pulpy, and Dan starts to think Midge is one hot tamale. Soon, the receptionist is smitten with Pulpy, Midge can''t get rid of Dan and Beatrice, and Pulpy''s job is in jeopardy. For once, Pulpy just might have to take a stand.

''A hilariously deadpan, wincingly funny take on one office innocent''s workplace coming-of-age. Brian "Pulpy" Lembeck is the new hero of thekeyboard-and-cubicle set.''

- Lynn Coady, author of Mean Boy
