For anyone who has ever served time in a gray cubicle (or known someone who has), here is the book that deserves a prime place in your in-box.
THEN WE CAME TO THE END, by Joshua Ferris, was nominated for a National Book Award in 2007 and was chosen as the May/June pick for the San Francisco Public Library book club. It has been described as “wickedly funny” and deals with subject matter to which many of us can relate: cube farms, the 9-5, and office tomfoolery in the age of the dot-com bust.
You can get it through Link+ and have it delivered to Gleeson Library in about 4 business days by clicking here. Then, come join us on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 to discuss it and share some laughs. We meet from 12 noon – 1 pm in the seminar room (2nd Fl) of Gleeson Library. Bring your lunch and tell your colleagues!
The Book Club is Co-Sponsored by USF Well Life Department and the Gleeson Library. It is for faculty and staff only.
