Office Officious Offal Ordinaire



If (a starkly simple syllable that bears infinite weight) you have:
  • ever worked in a cubicle farm
  • experienced the absurdity of office life
  • borne the brunt of brutal workplace fear
  • participated in or heard office gossip
  • hungered for humaneness in the halls of capitalism
  • felt frustrated at work
  • wondered about the interior life of your colleagues behind the workplace veneer
then (another word that carries great freight) read Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris. Catch-22 goes to the office.

(Check out the book's website, linked above. Disclaimer: I receive zilch from this endorsement. Just want to share.)
