This week, we choose our misery! Not really, but we’ll be chatting about a book that gives you the option.
Don’t miss this Friday’s show where Andrew and Mr. Green will be joined via phone by writer Jilly Gagnon, co-author of the new book, Choose Your Own Misery: The Office. The book is a parody of the classic Choose Your Own Adventure Books with a satirical look at the soul crushing existence that is working in an office. Jilly will be on to tell us all about the book and more! Here’s a quick bio on Jilly:
Born in Minnesota, a.k.a. “The Canada of the United States,” JILLY GAGNON has always preferred her adventures in book form…and preferably not that adventurous. The consummate “indoor kid,” Jilly always knew she was destined for the one career that sounds risky but never forces you to travel anywhere more terrifying than a Wiki-wormhole: writing.
In the past, Jilly has written humor, news, essays, and op-ed pieces for Newsweek, Elle, Vanity Fair, The Huffington Post, McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, The Onion, The Toast, and Boston’s alt-weekly, The Dig, among others. Her debut young adult novel, #famous, is forthcoming from HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen in 2017.
And here’s a quick description of the book:
The Choose Your Own Misery* parody books reimagine the beloved childhood classics as darkly comic choose-your-path stories for miserable, downtrodden adults. The first in the series, Choose Your Own Misery: The Office, was published by Diversion Books January 26, 2016.
In the first installment, readers play as a typical office drone who’s miserable at work, in love, and just generally. Find out whether you’ll lose your job, lose your office v-card, or lose mobility below the waist (possibly permanently) in this comic choose-your-own-path day at the office.
