"A magnificent piece of work." ― Dave Sim
This collection of darkly humorous tales chronicles a nameless protagonist's struggle with a stultifying routine of office drudgery. The stories' Kafkaesque vignettes, portrayed in striking black-and-white drawings, offer eerie perspectives on the rigors of everyday life.
