Then We Came to the End
Then We Came to the End
A Novel
Joshua Ferris



No one knows us quite the same way as the men and women who sit beside us in department meetings and crowd the office refrigerator with their labeled yogurts.- Every office is a family of sorts, and the ad agency Joshua Ferris brilliantly depicts in his debut novel is family at its strangest and best, coping with a business downturn in the time-honored way: through gossip, pranks, and increasingly frequent coffee breaks.---- With a demon's eye for the details that make life worth noticing, Joshua Ferris tells a true and funny story about survival in life's strangest environment--the one we pretend is normal five days a week."Not too manyauthors have written the Great American Office Novel. Joseph Heller did it in SomethingHappened (the one book of his to rival Catch-22). And Nicholson Baker pulled itoff in zanily fastidious fashion in The Mezzanine. To their ranks should beadded Joshua Ferris, whose THEN WE CAME TO THE END feels like a readymadeclassic of the genre. . . . A truly affecting novel about work, trust, love,and loneliness." -Seattle Times"Amasterwork of pitch and tone. . . . Ferris brilliantly captures the fishbowlquality of contemporary office life." -The New Yorker
