The Temp Pest
on May 10, 2013
I would never have thought a diatribe on the perils of temping could be such an entertaining trip. The horrors, absurdity, fears and occasional pleasures coalesce in this right riveting read which had me laughing out loud and aghast in equal measure. The author skilfully treats us to a deluge of scenarios that you wouldn't wish on anybody, and conjures the spirit of Morrissey, Monty Python and Buster Keaton as the protagonist stumbles and bumbles from one crap job to the next, occasionally finding salvation in a well earned coffee break. Very funny and highly recommended.
