And, frankly, this story (and the other one I've read from this collection - Orientation) doesn't. But that doesn't mean it's bad. It just means that Macmillian should maybe let the author's work speak for itself a little more.
This story isn't really plot-based - it's a collection of work-related events from the life of a temporary worker, spanning the realistic to tinged-with-the-surreal. While it certainly didn't inspire me to reassess the landscape of American fiction, it was an enjoyable read and, as of this time, is still free. If you enjoy literary fiction, this is well worth your time.
