Lost in Work by Amelia Horgan review – why so many people feel unfulfilled
When zero-hours contracts meet monetised side hustles and enforced fun, how do we demand fair pay and reclaim leisure from the clutches of capitalism?A recurrent theme in Lost in Work is that jobs are supposed to be fun these days while leisure is now regarded as something that can – or should – be profitable. It’s visible in the idea that every hobby or “side gig” is a potential source of income; that tube workers should write inspiring quotes on whiteboards at underground stations (something they previously did spontaneously); that employees should answer company emails in their free time. While most people still don’t have “fun” jobs and not all boring tasks constitute “work”, an almost imperceptible shift between work and play has occurred where, as Amelia Horgan puts it, “work is supposed to be fun, even when there’s very little that’s actually fun about it”.There are many madness-inducing observations about the nature of modern work in Horgan’s sharp polemic: of creeping surveillance, arbitrary tyranny, pointless churn and meaningless tasks. At a meeting of a rail workers’ union for a train line in south-east England, Horgan finds that staff are leaving their jobs in droves as a result of management’s use of flexible agency workers and its maniacal focus on “branding” and “customer experience”. In one darkly comic vignette, a railway employee recounts a visit from a head office director who “insisted all agency staff take off their (shamefully unbranded) gloves”. Still, the trains don’t run on time – or in some places, at all. As one union rep tells Horgan, if a train is running late, the network must cancel stops at smaller stations to avoid a centrally imposed fine, even if this means leaving passengers without transport.

Brio of Berardi and Locatelli at the heart of revitalised young Italy
Roberto Mancini’s use of the attacking strengths of two thriving Sassuolo players has helped fire an Azzurri renaissanceThis has already been a record-breaking summer for Roberto Mancini’s Italy. The Azzurri had never scored three goals in a European Championship game before their curtain-raiser against Turkey in Rome. Now they have done it twice in two matches, keeping clean sheets on both occasions.Ask their players for their magic formula, and you might be disappointed in the reply. “This team has no secret,” insisted the midfielder Nicolò Barella after Wednesday’s demolition of Switzerland. “There’s just enthusiasm, on and off the pitch. This is a compact group.” Continue reading...

Pain on the page: is this the end of the hysterical, ill woman of literature?
From Hilary Mantel to Irenosen Okojie, contemporary writers are rewriting the story of illness and the female body“I am fascinated by the line between writing and physical survival,” Hilary Mantel wrote in her 2010 essay “Meeting the Devil”. After an operation for endometriosis, she was writing about the need to express pain on the page. With her notebook always within arm’s reach, even in her morphine-fuelled fug she wrote incessantly, recording the hallucinatory and the real, inventing stories and gathering almost enough for a collection during her time as an in-patient.A notebook by the bedside is hardly revolutionary, but in the hands of an ill woman, and especially one with a gynaecological illness, its symbolism speaks to the past. Women over the centuries have not always expressed their own pain in art and literature. More often, they have had it expressed for them by men, in what Susan Sontag calls “sentimental fantasies” of suffering. Those fictions reflect the medicalised notion of the female body as inherently infirm and incapable of articulating its pain with any degree of reliability. For so long, women were advised even against reading or writing by their 19th-century doctors for fear it would inflame their maladies. Their physical survival was apparently contingent on their silence, not their testimonies. Continue reading...

Classical home listening: Pekka Kuusisto, Il Giardino Armonico and more
Kuusisto plays Muhly, Glass and Mozart, while Giovanni Antonini and co pass the time of day with Haydn• First Light (Pentatone), the first collaboration on disc between the Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto and the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, of which he is artistic director, presents works by Nico Muhly and Philip Glass: two New York composers of different generations united in friendship. Muhly’s Shrink (2019), a glittering, jittery, mischievous violin concerto written for Kuusisto, is here given its world premiere recording. The work reflects its title, contracting and intensifying as it progresses, a perfect mirror of the word “shrink” and a platform for Kuusisto in hyperactive, virtuosic mode.Glass’s The Orchard (from The Screens), in comparison, is a work of slow, long-breathed elegy. Muhly is the pianist, with Kuusisto beautifully lyrical and tender – a track you immediately want to share. The violinist has arranged Glass’s String Quartet No 3 “Mishima” for string orchestra, played here with energy and finesse, bringing alive those mid-1980s surging symmetries that first made Glass a cult figure.
