My friend Adam got me to read The Ask by Sam Lipsyte, because it was about a guy who works in a Development office.
It's pretty well written, really well written. It lead me to Shteyngart. Both works and authors are battling with satire and winning, but the work can be pretty depressing as a result, albeit truthful.
Am I now stuck on this Jewish author trend for a while? I remember after reading Goodbye, Columbus in high school, I said I'd never do it again....at least 'til I was older.
