A long-suffering employee in a big corporation has summoned up the courage to ask for a raise. But as he runs through the coming encounter in his mind, his neuroses come to the surface: What’s the best day to see the boss? What if he doesn’t offer you a seat when you go into his office? And should you ask that tricky question about his daughter’s illness?You can try to navigate these difficult decisions for yourself at www.theartofaskingyourbossforaraise.com ... The Art of Asking Your Boss for a Raise is a hilarious account of an employee losing his identity—and possibly his sanity—as he tries to put on the most acceptable face for the corporate world, with its rigid hierarchies and hostility to ideas and innovation. If he follows a certain course of action, so this logic goes, he will succeed—but, in accepting these conditions, are his attempts to challenge his world of work doomed from the outset?Neurotic and pessimistic, yet endearing, comic and never less than entertaining, Perec’s Woody Allen-esque underling presents an acute and penetrating vision of the world of office work, as pertinent today as it was when it was written in 1968.

5.0 O sztuce oraz sposobach usidlenia kierownika działu w celu upomnienia się o podwyżkę
Pierwsza, epicka wersja eksperymentu kombinatorycznego Pereca, której wersja druga to "Podwyżka" zawarta w tomie "Teatr I". Perec znowu w swoim żywiole (czyli oceanie słów i reguł). Budowa utworu sugerować może całość życia człowieka. Czyż nasze życie to nie ciąg drobnych, z pozoru nic nieznaczących...
