Executive Blues


G.J. Meyer recounts his bewildering journey from corporate success to white-collar joblessness.

"One of the best business stories in years." —Fortune


"A story which brings to life the dry news reports of corporate downsizing and restructuring–compelling in its honesty and detail, frightening as a reminder of the vulnerability of all employees in today's economy." –Charles Heckscher


"The haunting, bitter sound of the jobless blues, sung by an ex-corporate executive. The disdain of the big boys for their own, suddenly redundant, is as corrosive as their contempt for Joe Six-Pack. An astonishing work." –Studs Terkel


"... a funny, frank, and underlying it all, melancholy journal of a painful journey." —Kirkus Reviews
