Tomás' girlfriend has left him. She has, in fact, fled to Antarctica, leaving him alone in Santiago, where life is rapidly passing him by. 
 
Tomás is a game designer – but he can't see his ideas through. 
 
Tomás also works in a university – where he spends most of his time hiding under a desk. 
 
Tomás’ flat is falling apart. The band he used to play in is doing annoyingly well. He drinks coffee though a straw straight from the pot because he can't find a clean cup.... 
 
We Are The End is the smart and funny debut from Gonzalo G. Garcia. It’s a novel which gives a new voice to the Millennial Generation – exploring the difficulties of finding your place in the world, and having to navigate it, too, with few guides beyond computer game narratives and the useless advice of the older generation...
 
With its Chilean setting, fresh themes and perspectives – and its willingness to play with form – We Are The End is unique. But it is also universal. Tomás' loss and longing resonate deeply, as do his jokes. There is something of Tomás in all of us – even if he’s someone who ends up sleeping in a tent in his own living room...
