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 bone-headed 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… Do you want to start play? Y/N
‘Possibly the most gifted exegete of North American mass culture writing today. JPod is without doubt his strongest, best-observed novel since Microserfs, to which it is a kind of sequel’ - Observer
‘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 Review
‘A wonderfully inventive book, fizzing with wit and black humour’ - Sunday Tribune
‘Blackly funny ... as a chronicler of the techno-Coupland is pretty much still out on his own’ - Irish limes
