    Through a series of no-holds-barred essays, Randall Kenneth Jones introduces us to the characters who have shaped his character including his “nemesis,” ABC News’s Elizabeth Vargas as well as his former boss at Satan, Inc. Jones’s greatest gift is his honest and humorous portrayal of the “workplace” through his understanding of the diverse definitions of “work” as relating to jobs, parenting, relationships, community affiliations, friendships and sometimes, the work involved in simply getting out of bed each morning.
