THE PLEASURES AND SORROWS OF WORK
ISBN: 9780141027913
Author: Alain de Botton
Publish Date: JUNE 10
Format: PB

We spend most of our waking lives at work - in occupations often chosen by our unthinking teenage selves. And yet we rarely ask ourselves how we got there or what it might mean for us. Equally intrigued by work’s pleasures and its pains, Alain de Botton here heads out into the under-charted worlds of the office, the factory, the fishing fleet and the logistics centre, ears and eyes open to the beauty, interest and sheer strangeness of the modern workplace. Characteristically lucid, witty and inventive, de Botton’s ‘song for occupations’ is a celebration and exploration of an aspect of life which is all too often ignored and yet as central to us as our love lives.
