Then We Came

Various covers for Joshua Ferris's book. Top two are European, I think. Bottom is Rodrigo Corral's US hardcover.

This absurdist novel takes place at a Chicago ad agency in the late 90s, as the dot-com crash rears its head. The story revolves around the lives of the employees, who are layed off one by one. In the midst of layoff fears, they are given a ridiculous and seemingly pointless account to work on.
