Waiting for the Electricity PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Waiting for the Electricity free pdf In the republic of Georgia, the Communists are long gone, replaced by something much more confusing, that's for sure. There are no jobs in the cities. And when there are jobs, employees aren't compensated. And when they are compensated, it's because the jobs are not strictly scrupulous. When Slims discovers an application for an American small business internship program sponsored by Hillary Clinton, he knows that he has found his calling. Slims' dreams of bringing opportunity and the American dream to his homeland, even as his friends and relatives embrace decadence and a staggering array of unsavoury business practices. But when he finally gets to America he sees what reform and progress look like up close. And suddenly, his loud, bickering family and his anguished, joyful country no longer seem so grim.
