Description

Out of the ashes of doomed ad agency Miller Shanks has risen Meerkat 360, a very 21st century workplace. Staff include David Crutton, an MD with the worst email signature in history; Milton Keane, a definitely-straight PA with a yearning for reality tv fame; Liam O'Keefe, a creative with an online gambling addiction who may be linked with the contents of the stationery cupboard appearing on eBay; and, Harvey Harvey, a creative who politely replies to pornographic spam and who might just have met his future wife online - a rich Nigerian princess in deep trouble...Told entirely via emails, texts, webchat and blogs, the long-awaited follow up to "E" is a hilariously funny insight into the hearts, minds and inboxes of the world's most engagingly dysfunctional ad agency.show more

Review quote

"Prepare to giggle your way through this witty, brilliantly crafted comic novel" Heat "Had me doubled up in pain. For good reasons... You'll struggle to find a book with as many guffaws as this all year" Denofgeek.com "A stinging satire... Beaumont's dry wit and pithy writing will have readers laughing out loud" Publishers Weekly "Belly achingly funny... Like most offices, there are geeks, bitches, bullies and some show-off yearning for Reality TV fame. You should definitely buy this book" 69 Magazine "One of those books you have to read... It's very funny" Adland Suitshow more

Back cover copy

Welcome to Meerkat360, an ad agency so cutting-edge it employs a hairdresser. It also employs David Crutton, CEO (learned management at the feet of Pol Pot), his PA Dotty Podidra (an expert with the cafetière plunger), and Harvey Harvey (so polite that he replies to spam). They and a full crew of industrial-strength nut jobs wrestle with everyday office problems, such as selling Maggie Thatcher perfume and cigarettes for pre-schoolers, as well as flogging the contents of the office stationery cupboard on eBay. Told entirely via emails, texts, webchat and blogs, the long-awaited follow up to e is a savagely funny insight into the hearts, minds and inboxes of the world's most engagingly dysfunctional ad agency.show more
