Gonzales, Manuel: The Regional Office is Under Attack!. "The plot is as explosively paced as a comic book's, but juggles some dextrous genre shifts. Gonzales fills the workaday office with a glorious plot, giving voice to the John McClane fantasies lying dormant in cubicles across the world. I inhaled this book so quickly that I missed plot points on first read: best to let it wash over you and then marvel in retrospect at the clues you flew past." The Guardian - 'Feminist Die Hard' with superheroes - a critically acclaimed, hugely entertaining, genre-busting novel about love, revenge and (possibly) the end of the world... - The Regional Office and its band of super-powered female assassins protects the world from annihilation. But a prophecy suggests that someone from inside might bring about its downfall. And now the Regional Office is under attack... Rose is a young assassin leading the assault, eager to stretch into her powers and prove herself on her first mission. Defending the Regional Office is Sarah - who may or may not have a mechanical arm - fiercely devoted to the organisation that took her in as a troubled young woman. On the day that the Office is attacked, Rose's and Sarah's stories will overlap, their lives will collide, and the world as we know it just might come to an end... - Manuel Gonzales is the author of the acclaimed story collection The Miniature Wife , winner of the American Academy of Arts and Letters Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction and the John Gardner Fiction Book Award. A graduate of the Columbia University Creative Writing Program, he teaches writing at the University of Kentucky and the Institute of American Indian Arts.
