The Unnamed

In an America gone awry with strange weather, New York lawyer Tim Farnsworth suffers a peculiar affliction: the inability to stop walking. While his wife, Jane, struggles to keep their family together in the face of the unfathomable, Tim alone must battle to survive pitiless surroundings, encounters with hostile strangers, and the unrelenting demands of his own body. These challenges force Tim to ask life's most pressing questions, which he answers in a final return on foot across country to reunite with his wife and daughter. Stripped of all defences, and the sense of hope that lies at the very heart of the American dream, Farnsworth is compelled to confront the terrifying reality of what it is to be a human being.

Joshua Ferris (born 1974) is an American author best known for his debut 2007 novel, "Then We Came to the End". The book is a satire of the American workplace. It takes places in a ficticious Chicago ad agency that is experiencing a downturn at the end of the '90s Internet boom.

Joshua Ferris graduated from the University of Iowa with a BA in 1996. He then moved to Chicago, which he regards as home, before obtaining an MFA in writing from UC Irvine. His first published story, “Mrs. Blue”, appeared in the “Iowa Review” in 1999. "Then We Came to the End" has been greeted by positive reviews from The New Yorker, Esquire, and Slate and was a finalist for the National Book Award.

The New Yorker recently published a short story written by Ferris entitled "The Dinner Party" in an August 2008 issue.
