ABOUT THIS BOOK
Management trainee and first-time employee in the fridge-manufacturing giant J & K Ltd, Zoey is clueless about where her life is headed. She has barely managed to pass out of B-school when fate pushes her into another whirlpool. And, a look at her own fridge will confirm that she has no fascination for them.
The tall, thin, frizzy-haired Zoey enters J & K shaky-legged. And, when her scary boss Wimp-eater sends her to the company’s seedy Delhi branch to map all the consumer durable outlets in the city, her life goes into overdrive. Chances of it stabilizing seem slimmer by the day as she dodges gaalis from the Delhi boss, Chhota Don, and fends off lecherous looks from distributor Shady Singh, all the while evading her clingy ex, Velcro Man.
Then, just as she finds herself on the brink of a nervous breakdown, she is sent back to Mumbai. The move turns out to be a plunge from frying pan into the fire as Zoey becomes a victim of dipping sales and growing slurs, forcing her to ask questions so existential, even Kafka would be impressed.
Read on to find out how Zoey finds her way back to what she wants, both personally and professionally.
