Emotion at Work

Emotion at Work 

Malcom Forbes said if you have a job without any aggravations, you don't have a job. That’s probably true for a lot of folks, and how to manage those workplace aggravations is a job unto itself. These days “downsizing” and “budget cuts” are part of the 9 to 5 nomenclature. Now work life and home life boundaries are blurred. The chronic stress so many of us have can make keeping our personal life separate from professional persona downright hard. In her book, It’s Always Personal, Anne Kreamer challenges the convention that being emotional at work is off limits. With more women in the work force--with the emotional landscape of the workplace changing --it’s time for women and men a to get real, she argues. It’s time for us to get over the taboo of emotional openness on the job .

Walter Mosley on The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey


Walter MosleyLate last year, Walter Mosley joined us to talk about his latest novel, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey. Mosley’s protagonist, Ptolemy Grey, is an old, ailing recluse living in a dump of a cluttered apartment. His mind, on a downward spiral of dementia, is equally cluttered with a mashup of memories: the death of his wife, the lynching of a friend, his service in World War II. Then everything changes when he’s offered a Faustian bargain—a drug that will restore his brain in exchange for a shorter life. He takes the plunge, hoping mental clarity will help him solve a murder. Though Mosley may be best known for detective novels, his writing spans all genres: literary fiction, science fiction, crime and social commentary. In The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey, Mosely uses threads from all of these styles to tell the story of mortality and morality.
