☯ Full Synopsis : "The National Book Award finalist and debut novel by the bestselling author of The Dinner Party: "A readymade classic of the office-novel genre. . . . A truly affecting novel about work, trust, love, and loneliness." --Seattle Times 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."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "He was going to lose the house and everything in it. The rare pleasure of a bath, the copper pots hanging above the kitchen island, his family-again he would lose his family. He stood inside the house and took stock. Everything in it had been taken for granted. How had that happened again? He had promised himself not to take anything for granted and now he couldn't recall the moment that promise had given way to the everyday. Tim Farnsworth is a handsome, healthy man, aging with the grace of a matinee idol. His wife Jane still loves him, and for all its quiet trials, their marriage is still stronger than most. Despite long hours at the office, he remains passionate about his work, and his partnership at a prestigious Manhattan law firm means that the work he does is important. And, even as his daughter Becka retreats behind her guitar, her dreadlocks and her puppy fat, he offers her every one of a father's honest lies about her being the most beautiful girl in the world. He loves his wife, his family, his work, his home. He loves his kitchen. And then one day he stands up and walks out. And keeps walking. THE UNNAMED is a dazzling novel about a marriage and a family and the unseen forces of nature and desire that seem to threaten them both. It is the heartbreaking story of a life taken for granted and what happens when that life is abruptly and irrevocably taken away."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 : "'He reflected in future retrospect on the evening and foretold every gesture, every word. "I can't do it," he said. "I can predict everything that will happen from the moment they arrive to the little kiss on the cheek goodbye and I just can't goddamn do it."' The Dinner Party immerses us in the comic and strange realities of modern life, as we journey through the lives of the unlovable, the unloved, and those who love too much: Jack, who nervously tries to befriend the surly removal man by buying him a latte and a croissant; Sarah, who endlessly imagines how her evening would have been better had she only chosen a different restaurant; Joe, who spends a night alone at the office and surreptitiously starts to rearrange his colleagues' belongings. These are stories about the infinite possibilities of a person's life, from an agonizingly funny and original writer."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ 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 : "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 : "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 ORourke vive a New York in un appartamento su due livelli con vista sulla Brooklyn Promenade. Va a cena tre o quattro volte a settimana da chef che hanno parecchie stelle Michelin, infanzie trascorse nella valle del Rodano e show televisivi tutti loro. Si aggira in luoghi dove le scorte di vino, da sole, fannosembrare lImpero romano una zona depressa del Kansas. Ha uno studio di dentista che occupa metà del piano terra di un condominio dietro Park Avenue, la strada piú elegante del mondo, dove i portieri si vestono con tanto di guanti e berretto e aprono le porte ad anziane vedove con cagnolino. È capace di lavorare in cinque postazioni situate in cinque sale diverse, e di fare, cosí, soldi a palate. Tifa per i Red Sox che, nel 2004, soffiarono persino il titolo agli Yankees e vinsero le World Series. In una sola estate, per due mesi, ha anche profuso tutte le sue energie migliori nel golf. E, tuttavia, Paul ORourke ha un grave problema: tutte queste cose che racchiudono la sua vita gli appaiono soltanto parti. E le parti e qui viene la fregatura non sono tutto. Uno studio di dentista di successo non è tutto, i Red Sox, il lavoro, lo svago, gli chef, niente può essere veramente tutto, se ciascuna cosa riesce a occupare perfettamente il tempo soltanto per un certo periodo. Persino Connie, la ragazza con cui ha avuto unintensa relazione, non può essere tutto. Ipocrita come tutte le anime poetiche, Connie in America non metterebbe mai piede in una chiesa, ma in Europa si precipita subito dalla pista dellaeroporto al transetto, come se il Dio di Dante e di Bach non aspettasse che il suo arrivo da secoli. Paul ORourke avrebbe lassoluta certezza di aver sprecato la sua vita, se una serie inaspettata di eventi non mutasse radicalmente il corso della sua insignificante esistenza, destinata a trascinarsi nellabisso come un pallina da golf sullorlo della buca. Un giorno capita nel suo studio un tipo bizzarro che, dopo essersi fatto estrarre un dente rovinato da una maldestra otturazione, gli sussurra con lalito acre da anestetico: «Sono un ulm, e lo è anche lei!». Qualche tempo dopo qualcuno crea un sito web del suo studio, completo di profili di tutti i suoi collaboratori e di una sua biografia colma di citazioni tratte dallAntico Testamento. E lo «sputtanamento online» appare tuttaltro che tale. Chi parla a nome del «Dottor Paul C. ORourke, medico dentista», inviando messaggi sui blog e sulle bacheche facebook di mezzo mondo, lo fa non con idiozie inframmezzate da incomprensibili geroglifici, ma con pensieri profondi sullo stato presente e sulle cose ultime del mondo. Svegliamoci pure, ma a unora decente, splendida conferma del talento dellautore di E poi siamo arrivati alla fine, è una delle opere piú attese sulla scena letteraria internazionale, «il primo grande romanzo sul furto didentità in rete». (Yuko Shimizo, GQ) «Svegliamoci pure, ma a unora decente è meravigliosamente scritto. È divertente, provocatorio e toccante Vi sono dei libri che catturano per la forza della visione del mondo dellautore. Questo è uno di quei libri». Stephen King «La prosa di Ferris è impertinente, stravagante e spaventosamente bella». The New Yorker «Joshua Ferris ha saputo coinvolgere e sedurre i lettori giovani [...] e i letterati che soppesano le virgole e sanno quando è il caso di inchinarsi al cervello unito alla buona scrittura». Corriere della Sera «Un giovane narratore che ama in egual misura la cultura classica e quella popolare, e concentra il proprio sforzo creativo sulla sincerità e lumanità dei suoi personaggi». la Repubblica «Joshua Ferris è un vero scrittore, perché anche la sua scrittura racconta».

☯ Full Synopsis : "Betoverend liefdesverhaal, even gewaagd en authentiek als zijn veelgeprezen debuut Tim Farnsworth is een knappe, gezonde man van middelbare leeftijd. Zijn huwelijk met Jane lijkt onverwoestbaar. Zijn werk schenkt hem veel voldoening, ondanks de lange dagen die hij maakt als vennoot van een prestigieus advocatenkantoor in Manhattan. Zijn leven is goed; hij houdt van zijn vrouw, zijn opgroeiende - soms wat opstandige, maar talentvolle - dochter en van zijn werk. Maar op een dag staat hij op en loopt zomaar de deur uit. En hij blijft lopen. De naamlozen is het hartverscheurende verhaal over een leven waarin alle voorspoed vanzelfsprekend wordt gevonden, en over wat er gebeurt als dat leven plotseling en onherroepelijk weggenomen wordt. Ferris is een meester in het scheppen van onvergetelijke personages. Zijn betoverende vertelkracht is afwisselend hilarisch en ontroerend. De naamlozen is een imponerende roman over liefde, familiebanden, uiterlijke schijn, onvoorziene natuurkrachten en de (on)mogelijkheid iemand ooit echt te leren kennen."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Dans la boîte de pub où travaille le narrateur d'Open Space, c'est vache maigre. Les budgets dégringolent, les bagels gratuits disparaissent de la cafétéria, et il n'y a plus de bouquets de fleurs dans l'entrée. Les rumeurs sur le cancer qui rongerait ta glaciale et très compétente directrice Lynn Mason achèvent d'inquiéter tout te monde. L'activité décroît à vue d'œil et l'on baye aux corneilles entre deux sessions de bruits de couloir. Les têtes commencent à tomber. La tension monte. Soudain, une lueur d'espoir : l'agence doit répondre à un mystérieux appel d'offres pour une campagne sur le cancer du sein dont l'objectif est de faire rire les malades de leurs symptômes. Qui saura trouver le slogan adapté ? Qui échappera à la machine à licencier ? Marcia Dwyer, la langue de vipère ? Tom Mota, l'original du service toujours à la limite du dérapage ? Benny Shassburger, le boute-en-train de la boîte ? Jim Jackers, le rouquin fayot ? Ou encore Yop qui, fraîchement viré, s'obstine à revenir travailler clandestinement dans les bureaux désertés... D'une main de maître, Ferris suit tout ce petit monde à la trace, débusquant avec humour et tendresse les mille et un détails et travers de la vie de bureau, qui est parfois, pour tant d'entre nous, la vie tout court..."Article| Joshua Ferris| Statement ..."
