Bank

(2007)
A novel by

 
Every July, a fresh crop of college graduates clad in spiffy
new suits fills the offices of investment banking firms, each
newly minted analyst longing for big money while
sacrificing anything that resembles a normal life. In this
enormously entertaining first novel, a lovable, stressed-out
guy nicknamed Mumbles tells the story of how he and his
cohorts not only struggle to survive corporate purgatory, but
also find satisfying ways to strike back at the system.
Fueled by a constant flow of Starbucks coffee, Mumbles
and his friends take on such tasks as secretly filming a
despised colleague's boardroom romp with an assistant,
creating footage they plan to broadcast at the company's
holiday party. But true gratification comes only when they
actually start standing up to the bank's evil minions, those
who have no qualms about piling on a weekend's worth of
work on a Friday afternoon. With sharp comedy, episodes of
inspired hijinks, and its glimpse into a world of fleeting
elevator romances and not-so-infrequent nervous
breakdowns, BANK is a touching and lively novel that is,
at its heart, about figuring out what really matters in life.
