Almost fifty years old, G.J. Meyer was "let go" from his position as vice president of public relations at McDonnell Douglas. With an upper-middle-class standard of living to maintain, afraid, rejected, and feeling useless, he began to look for a new job. Eventually he found one in a distant city, and his family was forced to relocate. Within a year, however, Meyer's new job was eliminated, and he found himself thrown onto the job market once more. This book interweaves Meyer's 'war stories' of the chaotic labor market--the vague "searches" mounted by corporations, the shabby treatment by headhunters, the trials of his fellow "living dead" in outplacement--with his past as a "wonder boy" from a blue-collar neighborhood.
