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.

Excellence at a good pace
This novel has a unique story line, multiple well developed characters and a great pace to complement. This is definitely intelligent contemporary fiction without being overwhelming. I look forward to reading more of Joshua Ferris' work and following his writing career. I am glad I get to continue to read his shorter pieces in The New Yorker.
Hilarious! Captures the workplace and the different personalities perfectly.
