Synopsis

The acclaimed debut novel from the Arthur C Clarke Award winning author of Zoo City. In the near future, 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.
