Then we came to the end : a novel by Joshua Ferris ( Book )

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

To rise again at a decent hour : a novel by Joshua Ferris ( Recording )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paul O'Rourke is a Manhattan dentist with a thriving practice leading a quiet, routine-driven life. But behind the smiles and the nice apartment, he's a man made of contradictions, and his biggest fear is that he may never truly come to understand anybody, including himself. Then someone begins to impersonate Paul online, and he watches in horror as a website, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account are created in his name. What begins as an outrageous violation of his privacy soon becomes something more soul-frightening: the possibility that the online "Paul" might be a better version of the real thing. As Paul's quest to learn why his identity has been stolen deepens, he is forced to confront his troubled past and his uncertain future in a life disturbingly split between the real and the virtual

Vor allem kann man davonlaufen. Nur nicht vor den Dämonen des eigenen Ichs Der Anwalt Tim Farnsworth hat alles, was man sich wünschen kann im Leben: Er ist glücklich verheiratet, liebt seine pubertierende Tochter, hat ein schönes Haus und ziemlich viel Erfolg in seinem Beruf. Und doch steht er eines Tages auf und geht fort. Nicht, weil er möchte, sondern weil er muss, weil ihn etwas treibt, das stärker ist als sein Körper, sein Geist und sein Wille. Er macht sich auf den Weg hinaus ins Freie, ohne Rücksicht auf Wetter, Familie oder Job, läuft oft meilenweit, bevor er wieder zu sich kommt. Und er kann sich nicht erklären, warum er zerstört, was er am meisten liebt. Joshua Ferris wurde 1974 in Illinois geboren. Sein erster Roman 'Then We Came to the End', dt. 'Wir waren unsterblich', (2007) erschien in 24 Ländern, wurde mit dem Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award ausgezeichnet und für die Shortlist des National Book Award nominiert. Mit seinem zweiten Roman 'Ins Freie' kam Joshua Ferris 2010 auf die prestigeträchtige Auswahlliste '20 Under 40' des Literaturmagazins The New Yorker. Beide Romane wurden von der Kritik hoch gelobt und waren internationale Bestseller. Joshua Ferris lebt mit Frau und Kind in New York

Una grande agenzia di pubblicità sulle rive dell'immenso lago di fronte a Chicago, nel cuore dei grattacieli più antichi d'America. Qui, tra open space e cubicoli, tra computer e stampanti, si svolge la commedia umana di un gruppo di giovani spregiudicati e sognatori, cinici e brillanti, che ogni mattina, fatalmente, si incontra nello stesso luogo: in ufficio. E in quelle stanze, tra corridoi e scrivanie, scopriamo un mondo, l'universo intero della nostra gioia e del nostro scontento, l'affetto e la competizione, lo struggimento e il disprezzo, il desiderio e la privazione, in fondo la vita stessa, perché nessuno ci conosce davvero quanto le donne e gli uomini che ogni giorno ci siedono accanto

Wir waren unsterblich : Roman by Joshua Ferris ( Book )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Schauplatz dieses Romans ist eine grosse Werbeagentur in Chicago, die vom wirtschaftlichen Aufschwung Ende des vorigen Jahrhunderts profitiert hat, aber jetzt den Niedergang verkraften muss. Aufträge sind verloren gegangen und die Zeit der Kündigungen steht an. Jeder in den Kabinen des Grossraumbüros der Agentur hat Angst um den Arbeitsplatz. Sticheleien, Klatsch und Tratsch gehen um. Existenzielle Bedrohungen betreffen z.B. Janine, deren Tochter ermordet, oder die Managerin Lynn, bei der Krebs diagnostiziert worden ist. Das vormals gute Leben, die gute Zeit, die die Angestellten erlebt haben, wird abgelöst durch ein beinah groteskes Aufbegehren gegen die Willkür der Chefs. - Ein beeindruckender Roman, der wirtschaftliche und zwischenmenschliche Mechanismen schonungslos offenlegt
