Granta 109: Work

Winter 2009

Most of us spend more time at work than anywhere else, but are our lives defined by the work that we do? Do our jobs reflect our passions and personality, or are they just a means to an end, a necessary evil to pay for the weekends? From the jobless to the workaholics, from Peru to Essex to Rwanda, Granta 109 tells the stories of how and why we work, and whether or not work has the power to make us who we are.
