About the Author:

Ethan Cooper is the pseudonym for Tim Harris, a New York-based writer and editor. As Ethan Cooper, Harris has written four interlocked novels about corporate life. These are IN CONTROL, SMOOTH IN MEETINGS, TOM'S JOB, and TRIP AT THE TOP. In this sequence, these novels examine corporate life and its familial back story from the perspective of a CEO in 1990, a rising corporate star in 1995, a guy with a job, not a career, in 2000, and a small businessman trying to raise money in 2005. The plots of all four novels are touched by the machinations or successes of the same savvy billionaire investor.
