Tigers and the CEO describes the epic encounter between two characters representing, respectively, the realm of emotions and the logic of business. Through powerful language, the author portrays a series of instants in which the two worldviews -- the passionate and the passionless -- face one another. The result is a collection that cuts to the core of what it means, for a woman of the new millennium, to remain herself while facing the radically different Other.
Not much gets accomplished this early. / I make tea, while Saturday / is dark and deliberate / like a mourning widow.
