Then We Came to the End

by Joshua Ferris

The atmosphere of the office is captured well as are the petty hassles and the major disasters. We get to know some of people quite well, while others are merely sketches.

Not an easy task making other people's daily work interesting for the reader - but this author pulls it off.


But enough of daydreaming. Our desks were waiting, we had work to do. And work was everything. we liked to think it was family, it was God, it was following football on Sundays, it was shopping with the girls or a strong drink on Saturday night, that it was love, that it was sex, that it was keeping our eyes on retirement. but at two in the afternoon with bills to pay and layoffs hovering over us, it was all about the work.
