Zachary Post is a bit of an a–hole. Heâ€™s a middling, middle-twenties article author at a glossy new York magazine whoâ€™s very ambitious, but not very talented. He lives in terminal paranoia of (3) things: that his famously forged resume is going to be found out and heâ€™ll be out on his ear, that his two office girlfriends will discover heâ€™s dating both of them, and that the new guy, Mark Larkin, will become Zackâ€™s boss even though heâ€™s even faker and smarmier than Zack (if thatâ€™s possible). So, Zack decides to kill him. Just kidding!–at first. Suddenly, it becomes shockingly easy to imagine ways that Mark Larkin could make his final exit. Zack quickly discovers that itâ€™s not hard to be motivated when youâ€™re planning the perfect crime! Quirky and mean-spirited, Slab Rat is the perfect twenty-something-office-drone-slacker novel, kind of like a really nasty Dilbert comic. Great reading for those days when your first-job boss is on the rampage and the copy machine has broken down for the gazillionth time.
