Eight Minutes Idle by Matt Thorne
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


'Anyone who has ever undergone the hell of call centre work will recognise the plight of Dan. Plugged in and 24/7, tied to the job for the money he needs but never receives, his paranoia mounts to the point where every waking moment becomes work. Shagging his boss and moving into the office was a bad idea, taking the cat with him was worse - but in a world of short-term contracts and job insecurity, you do what you can to survive. A brilliant picture of life stretched beyond the ordinary' Big Issue 'A gravity-defying performance...Eight Minutes Idle never lets on quite how smart it is' Lawrence Norfolk, Independent 'Matt Thorne: he'll disrupt your dull existence' Face
