The office was nice . . . I worked with nice people . . .Beginning with its protagonist facing the numbing realization that her job is no longer challenging, this story follows her ups and downs from performance review to unwanted promotion, against a backdrop of petty office politics. She experiences a series of quite unexpected characters and events. There is the omnipresent know-it-all cat fairy, as well as the mysterious pineapple preening itself between the monitors and hiding a tale of email woe. People leave, people join, the company moves location, she is not-quite promoted. At each event she is torn between her fear of change and her understanding that there is nothing but change. Ultimately a strange and sobering sequence of events propels her to consider the impossible. At times charming, at times brutal, the minimal black and white line drawings of this graphic novel deftly uncover hidden emotions. The turn of an eyelash, the angle of a mouth are all enough to create an entire universe of feeling.
