About this book
A first novel about a group of white-collar workers struggling with their lives, this received unprecedented coverage and universal acclaim on its hardback publication. Selected as a summer reading recommendation by "The Sunday Times", "Telegraph", "Guardian" and "Observer", this edition has a witty and bold new jacket treatment. A major publicity campaign involving national press advertising, Facebook groups and MySpace competition and a podcast is planned. 'Very funny, intense and exhilarating' "Times"
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.
