For a man who craves anonymity, Chip's job working the switchboard of the E Z Sleep hotel, is perfect. But today is launch day and the switchboard hums portentously. It brings voices from the past. People who remind Chip of his old life -- the one in which he had hopes and dreams -- and they tell why he's happy being a no one, nowhere, when he could've been orbiting the earth.

Review quote

The dialogue is crisp, strange and compelling. -- Sunday Herald 20030907 It will intrigue you. Dark and deadly comedy. -- The Daily Mirror 20030809 Another fast-paced, well-structured black comedy -- The List 20030907 HELLOLAND is the dish of the day. Snappy, imaginative, chock full of mega-hip references and post-post-modern irony -- Venue 20030912 As nifty as his debut BLACKBOX -- Guardian 20030913 One of the funniest things I've read for ages. Walker deserves to be huge -- Time Out 20030806
