I loved this cleverly linked short story collection! It’s a biting critique of the absurdities of work life and how we maintain our humanity (or don’t) inside the bizarre systems it creates. Many collections start with a bang and peter out, but this one builds and sustains its momentum to the very end. There’s a beautiful array of scenarios and characters, whose triumphs and failings are portrayed with such candour and compassion that you’re left with a glorious ache in the chest. A fresh, fun, moving collection.
