On "Interoffice Romance" by Dan Pinkerton (934 words) ***

Pinkerton's romance is a study in group thought, one person upping the next but everyone sort of doing the same thing. It captures, as a few recent works have, the kind of camaraderie that exists in office cultures--and the lack of camaraderie (secretly, of course). As such, it's a humorous piece, all about Valentine's Day, the awkward holiday that those who take such things seriously get depressed over--or spends lots of money on. Read the story here at Hobart.
