Awesome Infographic: How to Ask Your Boss For a Raise


The Art of Asking Your Boss for a Raise by French literary stalwart Georges Perec is a darkly comedic classic previously lost to the English language. In celebration of what would have been Perec’s 75th birthday, Verso publishing is releasing the book in English for the very first time. Perec’s novel, called a “crazy-quilt monument to the imagination” by Paul Auster, delves into hilariously bleak detail the minutiae that go through all of our heads as we approach that most unapproachable of tasks: asking your boss for a raise. If you need something handy to keep in your pocket as you’re about to approach that old so-and-so of a slave driver, you’re in luck: Verso’s included a handy flow chart on everything you could possibly need to consider beforehand.
