January Book Club - Then We Came to the End
Here is our book for January picked by our newest member Becky at This Chickadee. You can pick up a copy here.
Here is the blurb on the back:
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 yogurt. Every office is a family of sorts, and the Chicago ad agency Joshua Ferris depicts in his exuberantly acclaimed first novel is family at its best and worst, coping with a business downturn in the time-honored way: through gossip, elaborate pranks, and increasingly frequent coffee breaks.
With a demon's eye for the details that make life worth noticing, Joshua Ferris tells an emotionally true and funny story about survival in life's strangest environment- the one we pretend is normal five days a week.
So there you have it..hopefully this will be The Office in book form. You have all of January, sorry I am late, ok go!
