It's the twenty-first century, and everything and everyone is connected. Meet Arjun Mehta, an Indian cybergeek catapulted into California's spiralling hi-tech sector; Leela Zahir, beguiling Bollywood actress filming in the midge-infested Scottish wilds; and Guy Swift, hyped-up marketing exec lost in a blue-sky tomorrow of his own devising. Three dislocated individuals seeking nodes of connectivity - a place to fit in. Yet this is the twenty-first century, and their lives are about to become unexpectedly entangled as a virus spreads, and all their futures are rewired. But will it take them further from their dreams, or closer to their hearts? "An aphoristic joke, a neat turn of phrase; a joke that makes you laugh ...there's nothing Kunzru couldn't manage in prose. Thoroughly engrossing". (Literary Review). "Funny, heartfelt and beautifully written, confirms Kunzru as one of the most talented writers of his generation". (Image). "Very enjoyable, I couldn't put it down. Funny and wry; it is deftly plotted; its characters intimately drawn. Blissful". (Observer). "Utterly affecting, a novel with devastating satirical bite". (Financial Times). Hari Kunzru is the author of the novels The Impressionist, Transmission, My Revolutions and Gods Without Men, and the story collection Noise. He lives in New York.Read Less
