Question of the Week #40: Life Imitates Art
Here's a great question submitted by reader femmebot (thanks!).
Along the lines of life imitating art/art imitating life, which book(s) seem to resemble your life?
Anything by Ann Tyler, although Anne Rice would be more exciting.

Microserfs by Douglas Coupland.
It perfectly captures what it is like to work for a huge corporation (which I did) and then a start-up (which I now do).
