re: I'm leaving now . . . but before I go there are some things you should know...!!!!
Set in a London ad agency desperate to land a coveted big account, e follows the bureaucratic bungling, cutthroat maneuvers, and outrageous sexual antics of a group of Miller-Shanks employees as they scheme, lie, lust, and claw their way up (and down) the company ladder. Written by a former advertising copywriter, this hilarious, dead-on-target novel marks the debut of a hip and exciting new voice in contemporary fiction. With the click of a mouse, Matt Beaumont brings the novel of letters into the twenty-first century, turning his merciless, unerring eye on today's Machiavellian corporate culture-with uproarious results.

This book is a must, it's hilarious and despite being written in email-form, each character is immediately recognisable and so real you know they're based on real people in the business. Three weeks of agency antics, and I promise you'll laugh out loud several times.
