We are delighted to share the Chicago Reader named Joe Meno’s Office Girl the 2013 Best New Novel by a Chicagoan & Best Book for the Disillusioned Artist in All of Us!Office Girl

From the accompanying review:

“Joe Meno has a way of capturing, in Polaroid moments, the unexplainable allure of the Second City. Hometown pride pulsed throughout 2004’s Hairstyles of the Damned, and again last year through Office Girl, a novel that ping-pongs around the various landmarks, topics, and minutiae of the urban mosaic that Meno is so skilled at representing.”
