Did she fall? Will she wake?’On an ordinary Friday afternoon in the office, talented young lawyer Joy Stephens plummets forty feet onto a marble floor.In the shadow of this baffling event, the lives of those closest to her begin to collide and change in dangerous ways. There is Dennis, her disgraced husband, who finds consolation in books- her colleague Peter, whose refuge is a mix of hedonism and hard work- Barbara, Joys PA, whod be content if only she could get away to New York- and Samir, Joys hygiene-obsessed personal trainer, who escapes into exercise routines and other, stranger rituals.In a sparkling glass office in Londons Square Mile - a place bursting with flirtations, water cooler confrontations and dangerous amounts of abject boredom - each of them is forced to question what theyve witnessed, and to confront past moments that have defined Joys life, as well as their own.
