The Quiet Ones: A Novel
"At once a workplace novel and a meditation on history and globalization, The Quiet Ones: A Novel by Glenn Diaz is a grimly humorous take on the soul-sapping, multi-billion-dollar telecom industry. In interlocking narratives, it explores lives rendered mute by irate callers, scripted apologies, and life’s menial violence."
