Description de l’éditeur
A young executive (used to be me) gets a job in England just when his life was in disruption in the USA, takes a job abroad and finds he now is utterly lost, confused, and perplexed as he tries to learn life, geography, sophistication, integration, typical work days, and interpreting menus, all the while endeavouring to restart the life of a party-guy and babe-magnet...okay, I lied about the babe magnet part. One day, the EVP of his American corporation, He Who Must Be Obeyed, He From Whom All Blessing Flow, implied he should work somewhere else! In his second book, Henry departs from the biopic of his father and family, and opts for laughs this time. He reveals the inside story of the work ethic and social habits of the 70's executive, as he is exported to England to serve as the training manager for a prestige car franchise. In his story, which he terms 'faction', he reveals the truth behind what taking employment abroad can mean, and attempts to warn the casual reader of the dangers of certain foods, importation of girlfriends, predatory landladies, chartered airplanes, birthdays away, and even penetrating the 'Iron Curtain' with often hilarious results..a good read for those that were there, and those who only wish to have been there...prepare for a laugh either way. After all was said and done, Henry still resides in England with his English wife who hopes he doesn't go through with this book...not to mention the people who'll recognise themselves!
