“Amusing…caustic… entertaining… read on company time!” —Us Weekly

“Between hilarious, comic-strip-like references to the workplace, this book grows funnier and more serious at the same time. Its everyman (and everywoman) message of injustice in the workplace should strike a chord with most readers. And the simple plot that Addie and her unlikely co-conspirator, Fat Bald Jeff, embark on to right workplace wrongs should leave jilted coworkers everywhere cheering.” —Philadelphia Weekly

“An antically satirical and quite smart sendup of the workplace… Stella provides a lot of freshly imagined fun… there are so many funny lines and scenes that even librarians may like it. As for the lumpen—they’ll love it.” —Michael Cart, San Francisco Chronicle  click here for the full review

“[M]any interesting works of literature [are] scheduled to appear this winter, by writers new and old. Perhaps the best title in the bunch belongs to “Fat Bald Jeff” (Grove) by Leslie Stella, a novel about a disaffected copy editor who engages in some long-overdue office sabotage.” — David L. Ulin, Los Angeles Times 

“A slacker hell [with] a disgruntled, wisecracking protagonist who rages successfully against the machine… with a contagious vibrancy… A hilarious send-up of hippies and hipsters.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Four years out of college, and all Addie has is a dismal job, a knockoff Burberry trench and a roommate who listens to ’70s cock rock—until she finds an unlikely life coach in the form of a tech-nerd coworker. Warm the pockets of your heart watching this bereft waif find a little happiness in life.”

“Chicago author Leslie Stella’s debut novel, Fat Bald Jeff, is a must-read. Fresh, fast-paced and laugh-out-loud funny, it marks Stella as an author to watch. Fat Bald Jeff is the story of two disgruntled employees who decide to fight back and a detailed examination of the daily life of young slackers. It will have you laughing hysterically and brighten even the dreariest afternoon.” —OnMilwaukee.com click here for the full review
