Description

Ethan and his five co-workers are marooned in JPod, a no-escape architectural limbo on the fringes of a massive game-design company. There, they wage battle against the demands of boneheaded marketing staff who torture them with idiotic changes to already idiotic games. Meanwhile, Ethan's personal life is being invaded by marijuana grow-ops, people-smuggling, ballroom dancing, global piracy and the rise of China. Everybody in both worlds seems to inhabit a moral grey zone, and nobody is exempt, not even his seemingly strait-laced parents or Coupland himself.show more

Review quote

'Very funny' Sunday Times 'A blackly comic tale of life in the age of Google, and it's Coupland's best book in years ... A wonderfully inventive book, fizzing with wit and black humour' Image 'The perfect vehicle for his funny and poignant evocations of near-term nostalgia ... there is brilliance at work in JPod. Not to mention more LOLs than you could shake a bong at' Los Angeles Times 'A dazzling comic novel, confirming that there is on current form no funnier novelist writing in English' Literary Reviewshow more
