Product description

Review

'Doctorow lives up to the promise of his first novel...This short novel's occasionally bitter, sometimes hilarious, and always wackily appealing protagonist consistently skewers those evils of modern culture he holds most pernicious.'' --Publishers Weekly

''As in Down and Out, Doctorow shows here that he's got the modern world, in all its Googled, Friendstered, and PDA-d glory, completely sussed.'' --Kirkus Reviews

''Bravura...Cory Doctorow writes fast and furiously, the words gushing out of him in a stream of metaphor and imagery that keeps you glued to his futurist tales.'' --Now (Toronto)

''Doctorow's easy-going storytelling belies the rapid-fire pacing of his tale of one man caught in a nightmare of time zones and technology. Combining near-future suspense with magical realism, the author of Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom crafts a surrealistic parable of progress gone wrong that belongs in most sf collections.'' --Library Journal

''Carried along by the rocketing narrative, the reader may not immediately realize this isn't just a wacky futuristic adventure; it's a fable with a distinctive moral about choosing physical comfort over spiritual fulfillment and worldly success over true happiness and the frightening consequences that can result.'' --RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
