The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit
The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit | Sloan Wilson
4 posts | 7 read | 6 to read
Tom Rath doesn't want anything extraordinary out of life: just a decent home, enough money to support his family, and a career that won't crush his spirit. After returning from World War II, he takes a PR job at a television network. It is inane, dehumanizing work. But when a series of personal crises force him to reexamine his priorities--and take responsibility for his past--he is finally moved to carve out an identity for himself.--From publisher description.

@BookBabe and I had the opportunity to go out tonight. And we didn't. You know why? Because we only want each others' company tonight, bonding over *books*! And tea. Books and tea. With #Coale. Just her and me, the books and tea, and Coale. Because nothing beats staying cozy in your own abode, with some classical music, under a blanket,reading with your soulmate by your side 😎👌🏻. Who else is happy to stay in tonight and read? 😁

JSW Me. Mr. JSW is out with coworkers and I'm in bed with my cat and books. #perfection 3y
obviateit My other half and I are chaperoning a youth event tonight. I'm pretty sure he and the big kid are playing laser tag; the toddler and I are guarding an out of bounds area. We're almost always home on Friday nights though. 😄 3y

#VintageEdition post! First edition of this modern-day Classic. It holds a place of prominence on the living room's fireplace mantel for all to see when they enter our abode. Very fond of--and gentle with--this book, we are 😊.

Bookquilter One of my favorite Gregory Peck movies❤️❤️❤️ 3y

This 1955 first edition of The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit traveled cross-country with me and spent some time poolside in Palm Desert, California. Awesome read.
