This short novel is an at times disturbing, funny, strange, dark, and delightful, which is everything I want in a novel set in a customer service environment.This story about a very not ordinary woman who doesn't seem to understand how normal people behave is undoubtedly weird. And yet, her observations about the world ring clearly. As others seem to put pressure on her to live life their way (the normal way: striving for marriage, children, career and financial success) she finds herself in the place she needs to be so she can continue to be the person she is.
