Title: Chapter 2: I Can Getcha Close (The Cusp of Dreams)
Author(s): Sheets, Diana E.
Subject(s): Fiction
Capitalism
Business
American society
Abstract: This novel is a dark saga of modern business and the lives of people who struggle in its pursuit. It is the story of the men and women in the trenches who do what they can to close thousand-dollar contracts and who wonder how they are going to pay next-month's rent. They lie, cheat, steal, and, when necessary, attack their co-workers at Amtech. However, their schemes don't work, and their jobs and personal relationships disintegrate. For the men and women living on the cusp, the outcomes are bad or, at best, ambiguous. Perhaps nobody cares, but we should because as the road-warriors' lives collapse our whole society crumbles.
