Novel ] ⇤ Kindle By Gail G Honeyman ∮ This excerpt is from an advance uncorrected copy proof Copyright 2017 Gail HoneymanWhen people ask me what I dotaxi drivers, hairdressersI tell them I work in an office In almost eight years, no ones ever asked what kind of office, or what sort of job I do there I cant decide whether thats because I fit perfectly with their idea of what an office worker looks like, or whether people hear the phrase work in an officeand automatically fill in the blanks themselveslady doing photocopying, man tapping at a keyboard Im not complaining Im delighted that I dont have to get into the fascinating intricacies of accounts receivable with them When I first started working here, whenever anyone asked, I told them that I worked for a graphic design company, but then they assumed I was a creative type It became a bit boring to see their faces blank over when I explained that it was back office stuff, that I didnt get to use the finetipped pens and the fancy software.Im nearly thirty years old now and Ive been working here since I was twentyone Bob, the owner, took me on not long after the office opened I suppose he felt sorry for me I had a degree in Classics and no work experience to speak of, and I turned up for the interview with a black eye, a couple of missing teeth and a broken arm Maybe he sensed, back then, that I would never aspire to anything than a poorly paid office job, that I would be content to stay with the company and save him the bother of ever having to recruit a replacement Perhaps he could also tell that Id never need to take time off to go on honeymoon, or request maternity leave I dont know.It s definitely a two tier system in the office the creatives are the film stars, the rest of us merely supporting artists You can tell by looking at us which category we fall into To be fair, part of that is salary elated The back office staff get paid a pittance, and so we can t afford much in the way of sharp haircuts and nerdy glasses Clothes, music, gadgets although the designers are desperate to be seen as freethinkers with unique ideas, they all adhere to a strict uniform.Graphic design is of no interest to me I m a finance clerk I could be issuing invoices for anything, really armaments, Rohypnol, coconuts.From Monday to Friday, I come in at 8.30 I take an hour for lunch I used to bring in my own sandwiches, but the food at home always went off before I could use it up, so now I get something from the high street I always finish with a trip to Marks Spencer on a Friday, which rounds off the week nicely I sit in the staffroom with my sandwich and I read the newspaper from cover to cover, and then do the crosswords I take the Daily Telegraph,not because I like it particularly, but because it has the best cryptic crossword I don t talk to anyoneby the time I ve bought my meal deal, read the paper and finished both crosswords, the hour is almost up I go back to my desk and work till 5.30 The bus home takes half an hour.I make supper and eat it while I listen to the Archers.I usually have pasta with pesto and saladone pan and one plate My childhood was full of culinary contradiction, and I ve dined on both hand dived scallops and boil in the bag cod over the years After much reflection on the political and sociological aspects of the table, I have realized that I am completely uninterested in food My preference is for fodder hat is cheap, quick and simple to procure and prepare, whilst providing the requisite nutrients to enable a person to stay alive.After I ve washed up, I read a book, or sometimes I watch television if there s a program the Telegraphhas recommended that day I usually well, always talk to Mummy on a Wednesday evening for ten minutes or so I go to bed around ten, read for half an hour and then put the light out I dont have trouble sleeping, as a rule.On Fridays, I dont get the bus straight after work but instead I go to the Tesco Metro around the corner from the office and buy a margherita pizza, some Chianti and two big bottles of Glens vodka When I get home, I eat the pizza and drink the wine I have some vodka afterward I dont need much on a Friday, just a few big swigs I usually wake up on the sofa around 3 a.m., and I stumble off to bed I drink the rest of the vodka over the weekend, spread it throughout both days so that Im neither drunk nor sober Monday takes a long time to come around.My phone doesnt ring oftenit makes me jump when it doesand its usually people asking if Ive been missold Payment Protection Insurance I whisper I know where you liveto them, and hang up the phone very, very gently No ones been in my flat this year apart from service professionals Ive not voluntarily invited another human being across the threshold, except to read the meter Youd think that would be impossible, wouldnt you Its true, though I do exist, dont I It often feels as if Im not here, that Im a figment of my own imagination There are days when I feel so lightly connected to the earth that the threads that tether me to the planet are gossamer thin, spun sugar A strong gust of wind could dislodge me completely, and Id lift off and blow away, like one of those seeds in a dandelion clock.The threads tighten slightly from Monday to Friday People phone the office to discuss credit lines, send me emails about contracts and estimates The employees I share an office withJaney, Loretta, Bernadette and Billywould notice if I didnt turn up After a few days Ive often wondered how many they would worry that I hadnt phoned in sickso unlike meand theyd dig out my address from the personnel files I suppose theyd call the police in the end, wouldnt they Would the officers break down the front door Find me, covering their faces, gagging at the smell That would give them something to talk about in the office They hate me, but they don t actually wish me dead I don t think so, anyway.I went to the doctor yesterday It feels like eons ago I got the young doctor this time, the pale chap with the red hair, which I was pleased about The younger they are, the recent their training, and that can only be a good thing I hate it when I get old Dr Wilson she s about sixty, and I can t imagine she knows much about the latest drugs and medical breakthroughs She can barely work the computer.The doctor was doing that thing where they talk to you but don t look at you, reading my notes on the screen, hitting the return key with increasing ferocity as he scrolled down. What can I do for you this time, Miss Oliphant It s back pain, Doctor, I told him I ve been in agony He still didn t look at me. How long have you been experiencing this he said. A couple of weeks, I told him.He nodded. I think I know what s causing it, I said, but I wanted to get your opinion He stopped reading, finally looked across at me. What is it that you think is causing your back pain, Miss Oliphant I think it s my breasts, Doctor, I told him. Your breasts Yes, I said You see, I ve weighed them, and they re almost half a stone combined weight, that is, not each I laughed He stared at me, not laughing That s a lot of weight to carry around, isn t it I asked him Imean, if I were to strap half a stone of additional flesh to your chest and force you to walk around all day like that, your back would hurt too, wouldn t it He stared at me, then cleared his throat.A charmer satisfyingly quirky.Janet Maslin, The New York Times This wacky, charming novel draws you in with humor, then turns out to contain both a suspenseful subplot and a
