Who DoYouWork For?The Business, a nearly omnipotent enterprise, is so infinitely discreet that even its top executives are vague about its actual business. It predates the Christian church and counts among its vast riches dozens of Michelangelos pornographic paintings and several sets of Crown jewels. The only thing it lacks is political clout, a problem the Business plans to solve by buying a nation and joining the United Nations. Kate Telman, the Businesss foremost expert on emerging technologies, is chosen to lead the effort. As this beautiful, ambitious American woman pursues the ultimate prize for her highly secretive transglobal employer, Iain Banks -- whomThe Timesof London calls the most imaginative British novelist of his generation -- offers a portrait of todays ubiquitous multinational corporations. Already a bestseller in England,The Businesspaints a picture that is at once wickedly satirical and frighteningly familiar.
