From the Author

"Friends. Work. Family. Add booze and errands, and that's pretty much it" -Simon Pestis Sy is a young man with a knack for decoding complex technology. When he takes a corporate job after years of freelancing, what he finds in his employer's labs and offices blows his socks off. Sy responds to the parade of fascinating case histories and jaw-dropping absurdities with his own free-spirited style. In so doing he discovers the truth about work, love, friendship, science - and above all, himself. Sober, thoughtful, astonishing, laugh-out-loud hilarious, and full of vivid characters, Simon Pure is the third novel by award-winning writer William Illsey Atkinson.
