About the Book

Joe B. enjoys the sweet life as a vice president at Universal Whirligig. Then one day he arrives at his job only to find he's been demoted to the mailroom, with no explanation nor warning. Joe B. downsizes his hope right in to the circular file as he tries to meet with the Big Boss, and receives advice from some of the worst friends ever. "The Job" tells a modern parable of ancient troubles and truths.

About the Author

Craig Davis was born and bred in Memphis, Tenn., during the dying days of Jim Crow, what Flannery O'Connor called the Christ-Haunted South. After earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism at University of Missouri, he toiled for 20 years in various newsrooms as a columnist, designer, artist and cartoonist. Writing fiction since 2004, he has produced four novels and a number of short stories, essays and Bible studies. Davis is currently working on a new collection of Christian Gothic short stories, to be titled "Red Hair Rising," one story from which is represented by the video above. He has two grown daughters and a dog who refuses to grow up, and was once wrestled to the ground by a set of bagpipes.
