☯ Full Synopsis : "Joshua Ferris's Then We Came to the End is one of the most acutely observed, dazzling American debuts of recent years. They spend their days - and too many of their nights - at work. Away from friends and family, they share a stretch of stained carpet with a group of strangers they call colleagues. There's Chris Yop, clinging to his ergonomic chair; Lynn Mason, the boss, whose breast cancer everyone pretends not to talk about; Carl Garbedian, secretly taking someone else's medication; Marcia Dwyer, whose hair is stuck in the eighties; and Benny, who's just - well, just Benny. Amidst the boredom, redundancies, water cooler moments, meetings, flirtations and pure rage, life is happening, to their great surprise, all around them. Then We Came to the End is about sitting all morning next to someone you cross the road to avoid at lunch. It's the story of your life and mine. 'Very funny, intense and exhilarating . . . For the first time in fiction, it has truly captured the way we work' The Times 'As dazzling as Franzen's The Corrections and as confident as Tartt's The Secret History . . . Exceptional, very funny' Daily Telegraph 'Slick, sophisticated and very funny, Ferris's cracking debut has modern Everyman fighting for his identity in an increasingly impersonal world' Daily Mail Joshua Ferris was born in Illinois in 1974. He is the author of Then We Came to the End (2007), which was nominated for the National Book Award and longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award, and the highly acclaimedThe Unnamed. In 2010 he was selected for the New Yorker's prestigious '20 under 40' list. To Rise Again at a Decent Hour was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2014 and the Dylan Thomas Prize 2014. He lives in New York."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, this big, brilliant, profoundly observed novel by National Book Award Finalist Joshua Ferris explores the absurdities of modern life and one man's search for meaning. Paul O'Rourke is a man made of contradictions: he loves the world, but doesn't know how to live in it. He's a Luddite addicted to his iPhone, a dentist with a nicotine habit, a rabid Red Sox fan devastated by their victories, and an atheist not quite willing to let go of God. 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. At once laugh-out-loud funny about the absurdities of the modern world, and indelibly profound about the eternal questions of the meaning of life, love and truth, TO RISE AGAIN AT A DECENT HOUR is a deeply moving and constantly surprising tour de force."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Joshua Ferris's The Unnamed has been hailed as 'the first great book of the decade' (GQ). In an America gone awry with strange weather, New York lawyer Tim Farnsworth suffers a peculiar affliction: the inability to stop walking. While his wife, Jane, struggles to keep their family together in the face of the unfathomable, Tim alone must battle to survive pitiless surroundings, encounters with hostile strangers, and the unrelenting demands of his own body. These challenges force Tim to ask life's most pressing questions, which he answers in a final return on foot across country to reunite with his wife and daughter. Stripped of all defences, and the sense of hope that lies at the very heart of the American dream, Farnsworth is compelled to confront the terrifying reality of what it is to be a human being. 'A writer almost uniquely in tune with modern life . . . Ferris's flashes of brilliance are many' Evening Standard 'Original, affecting. An almost unbearable love story, between remissions of intense connection and the human inevitability of parting, between the haven of marriage and all that lies beyond' Observer 'A stunner, an unnerving portrait of a man stripped of civilization's defenses' New Yorker Joshua Ferris was born in Illinois in 1974. He is the author of Then We Came to the End (2007), which was nominated for the National Book Award and longlisted for the Guardian First Book Award, and the highly acclaimed The Unnamed.

☯ Full Synopsis : "A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year The first collection of short stories from the critically acclaimed, prize-winning author of To Rise Again at a Decent Hour. These eleven stories by Joshua Ferris, many of which were first published in The New Yorker, are at once thrilling, strange, and comic. The modern tribulations of marriage, ambition, and the fear of missing out as the temptations flow like wine and the minutes of life tick down are explored with the characteristic wit and insight that have made Ferris one of our most critically acclaimed novelists. Each of these stories burrows deep into the often awkward and hilarious misunderstandings that pass between strangers and lovers alike, and that turn ordinary lives upside down. Ferris shows to what lengths we mortals go to coax human meaning from our very modest time on earth, an effort that skews ever-more desperately in the direction of redemption. There's Arty Groys, the Florida retiree whose birthday celebration involves pizza, a prostitute, and a life-saving heart attack. There's Sarah, the Brooklynite whose shape-shifting existential dilemma is set in motion by a simple spring breeze. And there's Jack, a man so warped by past experience that he's incapable of having a normal social interaction with the man he hires to help him move out of storage. The stories in The Dinner Party are about lives changed forever when the reckless gives way to possibility and the ordinary cedes ground to mystery. And each one confirms Ferris's reputation as one of the most dazzlingly talented, deeply humane writers at work today."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The acclaimed National Book Award finalist—“one of the United States’ finest writers,” according to Joshua Ferris, “full of wit, humanity, and fearless curiosity”—now gives us a novel that will join the short list of classics about children caught up in the Holocaust. Aron, the narrator, is an engaging if peculiar and unhappy young boy whose family is driven by the German onslaught from the Polish countryside into Warsaw and slowly battered by deprivation, disease, and persecution. He and a handful of boys and girls risk their lives by scuttling around the ghetto to smuggle and trade contraband through the quarantine walls in hopes of keeping their fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters alive, hunted all the while by blackmailers and by Jewish, Polish, and German police, not to mention the Gestapo. When his family is finally stripped away from him, Aron is rescued by Janusz Korczak, a doctor renowned throughout prewar Europe as an advocate of children’s rights who, once the Nazis swept in, was put in charge of the Warsaw orphanage. Treblinka awaits them all, but does Aron manage to escape—as his mentor suspected he could—to spread word about the atrocities? Jim Shepard has masterfully made this child’s-eye view of the darkest history mesmerizing, sometimes comic despite all odds, truly heartbreaking, and even inspiring. Anyone who hears Aron’s voice will remember it forever. From the Hardcover edition."Article| Jim Shepard| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Paul O’Rourke — dentista extraordinário, nova-iorquino com uma relação de amor e ódio com a cidade, ateu declarado, um descontente torcedor do Red Sox e apreciador de um bom mocaccino — é um jovem sem contato com a vida moderna. O mundo milimetricamente organizado de Paul sai dos eixos quando alguém começa a se passar por ele na internet. Paul assiste com horror impotente como um site, uma página no Facebook e uma conta no Twitter são criados em seu nome para promover uma religião antiga e pouco conhecida. No entanto, o que começou como uma violação escandalosa de sua privacidade logo se torna algo muito mais profundo e assustador: a possibilidade de que o “Paul virtual” poderia ser uma versão melhor do que o de carne e osso."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Tim è un uomo giovane e attraente, e il passare degli anni sembra avergli donato il fascino luminoso e intenso di un attore di teatro. La moglie Jane conserva intatto il suo amore per lui, e attraverso le piccole difficoltà di ogni giorno il loro matrimonio ha acquisito la forza di un vero legame, complice e sentimentale. Nonostante le lunghe ore passate in ufficio, Tim lavora con passione. È socio di un autorevole studio legale di Manhattan, e ciò che fa è importante per i colleghi e per se stesso. A casa, quando la figlia Becka si nasconde dietro la sua chitarra, con i capelli da rasta e un corpo che non ha ancora superato le rotondità paffute dellinfanzia, Tim riesce sempre a donarle le bugie oneste di un padre, convinto che la figlia sia la ragazza piú bella del mondo. Tim ama sua moglie, la propria famiglia, il lavoro, la sua casa. Ma un giorno Tim si alza ed esce. Esce dalla casa, dalla famiglia, dallufficio, dalla calda dimora degli affetti, dellamore, della sicurezza. Esce e inizia a camminare. Per non fermarsi mai piú. La sua è una malattia che lo spinge a mettersi in marcia senza potersi arrestare, perdendosi nei meandri della città, nelle periferie, nei sobborghi, nelle strade di campagna. Fino a quando, senza forze, come in trance, crolla e si addormenta. Per ritrovarsi privo di memoria in un luogo sconosciuto, e chiamare e implorare la moglie perché lo venga a recuperare. È una malattia senza nome, insinuante, che non lascia scampo. Non ci sono dottori, terapie, cure. Forse non esiste neppure, quella malattia, è solo un desiderio profondo e invincibile: lasciarsi indietro il fulgore soffocante e irresistibile della felicità. Un romanzo di bellezza abbagliante sul matrimonio e sulla famiglia, sulle forze imprevedibili della natura e del desiderio. La storia lancinante e commovente di una vita che si dà per scontata e di quello che accade quando tutto ciò che siamo viene improvvisamente gettato via."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "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. Carl, Karen, Benny, Amber, Jim, sanno tutto di tutti. Sanno che Tom è pazzo, e che Lynn, il boss, ha un tumore al seno. Sanno che il vecchio Brizz se la passa male ed è finito nella classifica di Quale vip muore prima, anche se non è una celebrità. Sanno chi è nelle grazie del capo e chi verrà fatto fuori. Sanno tutto di tutti perché quell'ufficio è ormai la loro vita. 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."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "ABSTRACT: As a post-9/11 office novel, Joshua Ferris's Then We Came to the End effectively represents the contemporary American work novel's anxieties about violence, trauma, and loss—particularly the loss of the American Dream—and its consolations in humor and human community. The novel's distinctive first-person plural narration foregrounds Ferris's understanding of office workers' need for safety in numbers and for social connectedness, even while they hope that their individual achievements will be rewarded and save their jobs. The tension between the desire for individualism and also for group identity signals a shift in workplace fiction from earlier incarnations, reflecting the changed environment of the American office place. By focusing on the advertising business and its language manipulations, Ferris ultimately asks whether or not words—and work—can still matter or create meaning."Article| no defined| Statement ..."
