The Employees, by Olga Ravn

Stupidly I bought the book in English, not knowing the author was Danish.

  • and my mind is like a hand, it touches rather than thinks.

Reminded me somewhat of Notable American Women by Ben Marcus in how it (seems to) to render the familiar alien, a sort of mystification of the commonplace. Although the language style is markedly different, and not nearly as fully developed here as it is in Ben Marcus.
