The Workaholism Issue
Work isn't just what we do—it's who we are.
Work is about our lives, our dreams...as well as the things we are often scared to share.
Where does hard work stray into something addictive, controlling, and dangerous? Why are we working so hard? For many it’s to achieve something, to build a future. But sometimes work also helps us avoid the other things we've got going on. So: When you live on a spectrum between work and workaholism, what’s the real cost?
We’ve got interviews with people who are making their work struggles public, reporting and essays from around the world, and haunting photography. And that’s just the beginning: Anxy No.2 is 144 pages of beautiful design, astonishing art, and powerful storytelling.
— Highlights include —
Neal Brennan interviewed by Zoneil Maharaj, with photography by An Rong Xu; Talia Herman on life and death on the Russian River; Kenneth Rosen on anxiety and war; Amanda Rosenberg on the myth of mania; Preston Gannaway and Lauren Smiley on the uberization of work; and poetry by Musa Okwonga.
