Ed Park’s screamingly funny ‘Personal Days’ 

If you’ve ever felt like a prisoner in your office, or a victim of 21st-century technology, pick up Ed Park’s "Personal Days," a hilarious, biting tale of modern life in cubicles. Park, founding editor of the magazine The Believer and a former editor of the Village Voice Literary Supplement, finely skewers the day-to-day routines and foibles of a group of workers trying to keep their jobs at a company whose purpose is never made clear. Convoluted e-mails, bosses who can’t be trusted and plenty of corporate doublespeak are among the highlights of the funny novel, which surely will resonate with those who’ve ever been frustrated over a stapler missing from their desk. Park appears today at 7 p.m. at Booksmith, 1644 Haight St., San Francisco, (415) 863-8688; and at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Pegasus Books, 1855 Solano Ave., Berkeley, (510) 525-1646.
