Fiction • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Carly Robins narrates the journey of a temporary professional, called the Temp, and her encounters with strange and irreverent assignments. Whether she's filling in for a member of a pirate crew, opening doors to a haunted house, or acting as a temporary barnacle, the Temp's most important job is doing whatever assignment she has been given well. Her dream is to find "the Steadiness," or the seemingly indescribable feeling of a full-time position. Robins's inflections evoke the perky perfection of a woman who is making incredible connections between the nature of work and life, all amid the story's magical realism. Robins's narration makes this audiobook a delightful experience worthy of multiple listens. V.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
