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


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
