A playful, big-hearted tragicomedy in the Russo/Irving mold, American Corporate chronicles the misadventures of middle-aged Jack Sullivan and his family as they bounce across the country in search of gainful employment, domestic tranquility, and a few people they can trust. It is a story that working parents past, present and future will see as part of their own: the triumphs, the tragedies, the innocent mistakes and the not-so-innocent mistakes, and above all the forgiveness that keeps families together to face another challenge.
“The premise of the book—a man named Jack looks for a job in the corporate world, facing the pitfalls and craziness that quest would automatically bring with it, while also trying to reconnect with his distant wife—actually sounds quite sad. Somehow, Jeb Stewart Harrison does what all of the best humor writers do, taking an almost tragic premise and making it comedy.”
- Kathleen Kelly, Celticlady’s Reviews
“A hilarious and almost uncomfortably realistic portrayal of the corporate world… This book was brilliant both because of the comedy and the look into the nonsensical, bureaucratic and costly world of large corporations…. This was a great outing and well worth the read. Five stars”
- Laura Lee, Toot’s Book Review
