What''s really going on? Who''s really in charge? You have
NO. F***KING. IDEA.
A frighteningly persuasive, high-tech fable, this novel
follows the lives of four narrators living in an alternative
futuristic Cape Town, South Africa. An art-school dropout,
and AIDS baby, a tech-activist and an RPG-obsessed blogger live in
a world where your online identity is at least as important as your
physical one. Getting disconnected is a punishment worse than
imprisonment, but someone''s got to stand up to Government Inc. -
whatever the cost. Taking hedonistic trends in society to
their ultimate conclusions, this tale paints anything but a
forecasted utopia, satirically undermining the reified idea of
progress as society''s white knight.
From the bestselling author of The Shining Girls and the
Arthur C. Clarke-award-winning Zoo City.
