Before my life began as a bookseller, I worked in an office. I can attest that Ferris has distilled something unexpected from the plain potatoes of office culture and bottled it here like happy-hour vodka. Then We Came to the End plucks the lid off the office of a downsizing ad agency to show us those inside scrambling to protect their monotonous existences. From its top-down view, in a voice omniscient and excruciatingly gossipy (first-person plural narration, anyone?), the story summons something so unique from the materials of the mundane. Prior office experience not needed to apply.
