Original.

Addie Prewitt is a copy editor for the National Association of Libraries. When her boss, the repulsive Coddles, heaps another new project on her department -- with no additional remuneration naturally -- she decides she's had enough. She spends her days battling with her roommate, Val Wayne Newton, about whether Black Sabbath or Neil Diamond will occupy the turntable and her nights beating her overeager suitor, Martin Lemming, away from the door of her boudoir. When she discovers a piece of vile pornography in Coddles's dry cleaning, she has the means to retaliate. Meanwhile, Fat Bald Jeff, the tech-support guy who has to cope with her mechanical self-sabotage, turns out to be even more disaffected than she, and they hatch the ultimate plan to give the pigs some of their own medicine. With a surreal wit and a keen eye that bring to mind Lily Tomlin set loose in Dilbert-world, Fat Bald Jeff is a sharp satire and a paean to the petty humiliations of workers everywhere.


Blackwell North Amer
O, to be young and downwardly mobile: crumbling apartments and sinister landlords; roommates you love/hate and weekly spending sprees at Salvation Army; and most of all, the daily humiliations and passive aggression affectionately known as "office politics." Bravely sallying forth into this vale of tears is Addie Prewitt, a noble copyeditor for the National Association of Libraries. When her boss, the repulsive Coddles, heaps another new project on her department, with no additional remuneration, she decides enough is enough. And when she meets Fat Bald Jeff, the tech-support guy even more disaffected than she, they hatch the ultimate plan to give the pigs some of their own medicine. With a surreal wit that brings to mind Lily Tomlin set loose in Dilbert-world, Fat Bald Jeff is a paean to the sufferings of workers everywhere.
