Read with me in September: Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris

Read Then We Came to the End with me during the month of September! Joshua Ferris’ novel is a satirical look at office life, the place where we probably spend more time than anywhere else, with people we see more than anyone else. As this particular office faces layoffs and closure, Ferris chronicles it all as seen through the eyes of the group, “through gossip, elaborate pranks, and increasingly frequent coffee breaks.”

It’s been called “Hilarious in a Catch-22 way” by Stephen King, “expansive, great-hearted, and acidly funny” by James Poniewozik in the NYTBR, and “wickely funny and painfully real” by Redbook.

Read the first chapter of this 2007 National Book Award finalist here. There’s also a book trailer. If you’re a fan of “The Office,” read this one with me and give this book a try…
