If you woke up this morning and went to a job you hated, then this book is for you. With acidic pen and poison tongue Chris Walter revisits the kitchens, factories, warehouses, and construction sites of his youth. This book will take you to familiar places, and you will smirk knowingly at the great many injustices visited upon the working class. You have been there. In fact, you may still be there.
Punch the Boss is a semi-autobiographical account of various menial jobs and obnoxious bosses endured by the author. From short-order cook, ditch digger, factory worker, and drywaller, Chris tried his hand unsuccessfully at many backbreaking and low paying jobs, learning the hard way that high school dropouts always enter the workforce at the very lowest possible position. He also discovered that power tripping, authority loving supervisors and foremen could often be worse than the actual jobs themselves. Loaded with black humour and self-deprecating wit, this book is sure to make you groan with empathy and howl with laughter. While the author does not advocate violence, readers can decide for themselves if there should be exceptions to the rule.
About the author
Chris Walter, a recovering drug addict and hope-to-die punk rocker, began writing purposefully in 1998 after realizing that his life up to that point had been meaningless. With help from his girlfriend who worked at a printing shop he started Gofuckyerself Press and began to write and distribute a steady stream of music biographies and fiction novels. His first published work, Punk Rules OK (Burn Books, 2002) went largely unnoticed except by detractors, inspiring him to return to pirate-style DIY operations. Gofuckyerself Press then expanded to include unschooled troublemakers Simon Snotface, Stewart Black, and Australian Drew Gates, drawing further criticism from the established literary industry. To date GFY Press has published twenty-one titles including Chris's latest music biography, Argh Fuck Kill: The Story of the DayGlo Abortions.
