B.S., Incorporated is a funny, insightful, and heartfelt story that captures the humor and humanity of the 9-to-5 grind. It has been compared to The Office, The Devil Wears Prada, and Office Space.
Although it is a work of fiction, B.S., Incorporated draws from the authors’ real-life experiences. Jennifer Rock and Michael Voss have had the good fortune to work for and with companies that spanned industries and impact – from privately held start-ups to Fortune 50 powerhouses. One day, after yet another mind-numbing, daylong meeting about a project, they fled to a bar patio in the shadow of their company’s office building. There, they drank to excess and swapped hilarious and heartbreaking tales about life in corporate America. At that point they realized they had a story—actually, many stories—worth telling, and they pinky swore that after sobering up, they’d write a book about their experiences. In 2013, the Minneapolis-area natives struck out on their own to form the communication agency ROCKdotVOSS and write their debut novel B.S., Incorporated.
“Stop by especially if you’ve had a long day at the office! We will read a little from our book, share some of the back stories that went into writing it, and encourage attendees to share their own hilarious and heartbreaking tales,” said Michael Voss. “We like to think of our book events as part entertainment, part workplace support group.”
