Another debut is Joshua Ferris's Then We Came to the End (Little, Brown. 2007. ISBN 978-0-316-01638-4. $23.99), a riot of a novel about characters caught in the office politics of modern work-in this case at an ad agency. It is brilliantly conceived and told almost entirely in first-person plural-the "We" is a collective narration of characters who slowly become individualized as layoffs begin and the story coalesces. Ferris is witty, insightful, and exuberantly wicked in his examination of workplace culture. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
