Michael Lee began writing letters of application for jobs that were either beyond his capability, or for which he would be deemed massively under-qualified or under-skilled, or for jobs that didn't exist. This is the collection of replies to his applications.

WRITTEN IN JEST Summary

WRITTEN IN JEST by Michael A. Lee

In response to a mid-life crisis, Michael Lee decided to take positive action. He began writing letters of application for jobs that were either impossibly beyond his capability, or for which he would be deemed massively under-qualified or under-skilled, or for jobs that didn't exist at all, but might, just possibly might, if reality were viewed from a different angle. He would collect the replies, put together a best-selling book and perhaps become a wealthy author and lecturer in no time at all. The result is a highly entertaining collection of letters and replies. And yes, he really exists!

WRITTEN IN JEST Reviews

"The Spectator Cartoon Book 2002" contains the best of the best - 96 pages of the very wittiest of the 1500 cartoons which appear in the Spectator over the year. Wonderfully inventive spoof job applications from high-profile people, ranging from Pope John Paul II to the Beast of Bodmin Moor.
