Een maartse maandagochtend, een industriepark in Izegem. Een klein jaar nadat hij aan de Gentse universiteit zijn master geschiedenis haalde, fietst Tuur Viaene het terrein van een fabrikant van rust- en ziekenhuismeubels op. 'Ik ben een interimmer', piept Tuur aan de barak waar een paar mannen staan roken. 'Ik kom hier laden en lossen.' Soms kleven journalisten een valse baard op en gaan ze undercover. Dan beland je snel bij Wallraff of Ehrenreich, schrijvers die het genre op de kaart zetten. Dit boek is anders.
Het vertelt het relaas van een van de honderdduizenden in dit land die geen vast werk vinden en dan maar aankloppen bij een interimkantoor. Van nepvacatures, onbestaande veiligheidsregels, personeelschefs die je op vrijdagnamiddag ontslaan omdat je 'de kmo-mentaliteit' mist tot de onbeschofte behandeling door de VDAB: het is een verbijsterende schets van de onderkant van de arbeidsmarkt. Waar mensen wegwerpmensen zijn.

“In the 1860s, western alienation began at Yonge Street, and George Brown was the Preston Manning of the day.” So begins Christopher Moore’s fascinating 1990s look at the messy, dramatic, crisis-ridden process that brought Canada into being – and at the politicians, no more lovable or united than our own, who, against all odds, managed to forge a deal that worked. From the first chapter, he turns a fresh, perceptive, and lucid eye on the people, the issues, and the political theories of Confederation – from John A. Macdonald’s canny handling of leadership to the invention of federalism and the Senate, from the Quebec question to the influence of political philosophers Edmund Burke and Walter Bagehot. This is a book for all Canadians who love their country – and fear for it after the failure of the constitution-making of the 1990s. Here is a clear, entertaining reintroduction to the ideas and processes that forged the nation. From the Hardcover edition.
