Our winningly intrepid narrator is twentysomething, lives in London, and is armed with a not-so-marketable MA in the history of punishment. Temping as a receptionist, she endeavors to fill the achingly dull and spacious hours afforded by her less-than-challenging job by writing a book. There's no shortage of material for this enterprising young woman. For starters, there's the new man in her life -- who insists that he not appear in her book. (So she christens him The Man Who Mustn't be Mentioned (MWMM).) And of course, there's the office where she works, which she irreverently deconstructs with acute observations about the politics of power, the hierarchy of lunchtime seating, and the secret lives of various employees.

Ringing for You is the perfect novel for anyone who has ever been overworked, underpaid, or just plain overeducated. Anouchka Grose Forrester has written a witty and incisive expose on the peculiarities of office life, romance, and the art of the novel itself.
