Part memoir, part theory, A life lived remotely tells the story of the transition to the digital age through our relationship to work. Following the author's journey as she left her t-to-5 for the work of freelancing and working remotely, it outlines and reflects on what it means to work from home, how it affects our daily lives and our relationships, and how it is tied in to the development of the internet and our increasingly digitised world.
