No one dies in Office Girl. Nobody talks about the international political situation. There is no mention of any economic collapse. Nothing takes place during a World War. Instead, this novel is about young people doing interesting things in the final moments of the last century. Odile is a lovely twenty-three year old art school dropout, a minor vandal, and a hopeless dreamer. Jack is a twenty-five year old shirker who's most happy capturing the endless noises of the city on his out-of-date tape recorder. Together they decide to start their own art movement in defiance of a contemporary culture made dull by both the tedious and the obvious. Set in February 1999 just before the end of one world and the beginning of another, Office Girl is the story of two people caught between the uncertainty of their futures and the all-too-brief moments of modern life.
