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, who is 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 corss the road to avoid at lunch. It's the story of your life, and mine. "It's a long time since I've read a novel so painfully funny, or so absurdly true" - Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday "Outstanding... incisive, urgent, funny and snappily written" - Sunday Times "Slick, sophisticated and very funny, Ferris's cracking debut has modern Everyman fighting for his identity in an increasingly impersonal world" - Daily Mail
