Capitalism has become strange. Ironically, while the 'age of work' seems to have come to an end, working has assumed a total presence a€“ a 'worker's society' in the worst sense of the term a€“ where everyone finds themselves obsessed with it. So what does the worker tell us today? qI feel drained, emptya€b dead.q This book tells the story of the dead man working. It follows this figure through the daily tedium of the office, to the humiliating mandatory team building exercise, to awkward encounters with the funky boss who pretends to hate capitalism and tells you to be authentic.

And then, almost inaudibly, one could hear a collective whisper: a#39;Little pig, little pig ... let me in!
