37 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 3,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

"How we hated our coffee mugs! Our mouse pads, our desk clocks, our daily calendars, all the contents of our desk drawers ... "Then We Came to the End is about how we spend our days and too many of our nights. It is about being away from friends and family, about sharing a stretch of stained carpet with a group of strangers we call colleagues. It is about sitting all morning next to someone you deliberately cross the road to avoid at lunchtime. Joshua Ferris's fabulous novel is the story of your life, and mine. It is the story of our times

Ins Freie Roman by Joshua Ferris ( Book )
4 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

Wir waren unsterblich : Roman by Joshua Ferris ( Book )
5 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 15 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
