Petite Series: The Night Cleaner by Florence Aubenas

Original title: Le quai de Ouistreham

2010, Editions de l'Olivier


SUMMARY: During the 2008 financial crisis and ensuing recession, journalist Florence Aubenas went to a small town in Normandy, seeking employment with no experience or qualifications. She ended up working as a cleaner on the night shift, and reports on her experience in this book.


MEMORABLE MOMENT: Florence realizes she is invisible to the employees of the company where she cleans; to them she is just part of the furniture.


RATING: Recommend.
