Product Description

In a hilarious debut that evokes the bygone era of the bursting of the late 90's economic bubble, Joshua Ferris brillantly paints the business-as-usual demeanor that skims the surface of the repressed and zany antics of a white-collar Chicago advertising agency. From squabbles about office chairs to employee layoffs, this group of workers struggles to keep an ever-optimistic halogen-tinged smile as they pretend to make headway on the mysterious pro bono ad campaign that is their only remaining work. 'Then We Came to the End' takes a demon's eye view of one of life's strangest environents - the one we pretend is normal five days a week. A National Book Award finalist.

    In the spirit of Max Barry’s “Company”, we are given an inside view of a deteriorating company, one of manic employees, odd habits and the blind determination to believe that everything is okay even when they find themselves hating the very coffee mugs on their desks. Witty, acerbic and oddball, “Then We Came to the End” is a truly pop-eyed tale of business gone wild and a phenomenal debut effort on the part of Mr. Ferris.
