Company Man

Company Man by Brent Wade is a biting and insightful examination of one man’s struggle with his racial identity as he forges his reputation and advances in corporate America. What transpires as the narrative unfolds is a complex character study pitting the protagonist’s disparate selves against each other. He wrestles with his perception of himself, how his wife sees him, how he behaves around the white executives at work, and how he acts around the few black coworkers he has. Wade slyly exposes the de facto racism inherent in big business with first person prose filled with beautifully crafted sentences that are at times revelatory in their simple truths.
