If you showed up to work today thinking that your boss, or the levels above him or her, is a jerk ... boy, do we have some reading material for you.
Literary Hub has an excerpt from Black Buck, the debut novel of Mateo Askaripour and the January 2021 Read With Jenna pick, that might inspire a sense of gratitude (or maybe grudging relief) for your managers.
The novel follows the journey of Darren, who's plucked from a job as a Starbucks manager by the CEO of a hot new startup company and becomes its only Black salesman — a move that drastically changes his life.
Lit Hub's excerpt of Black Buck comes from Darren's memorable arrival at that company.
