Amado amo / Beloved Master
Novel , 1988
Amado amo is a dark comedy about the world of work. It’s a novel about power, but power in lower-case letters, everyday and perfectly recognisable: the kind exercised by companies and suffered by salaried workers, laughable power measured by office size or the number of times the boss stops to talk to you. César Miranda, a corporate employee, is a man in crisis trying to survive the storms and torments of frenzied competitiveness. His misfortunes paint an implacable but hilarious picture of the ridiculous society in which we live.
