I Have Colleagues is a novel about labour.
Luckily I got a job. With the municipality. What are your thoughts on being beaten? the interviewer asked me.
With tenderness, candor and comedy, author Camilla Bogetun Johansen writes about the physical and mental reality of being a care worker.. We meet the geology student, the chef, the telemarketer, the former hand model, the artist, the unskilled employees, the social worker and more. Their common ground is that they work in a caregiving home for mentally disabled autists.
What kind of work is it to be a care worker? And who is the care worker? I Have Colleagues is a novel about manual labor, dreams, money – and being a body in search of a safe place.
