Product description

Review

'An hilarious, moving read… Brilliantly observed, sharply written and constantly entertaining.' NME

'A funny and stridently topical novel. Coupland continues to register the buzz of his generation.' Jay McInerney, New York Times

'The writing is astonishing, the emotions genuine and the characters fully formed… Microserfs shows yet again Coupland's ability to create rather than imitate.' Irish Times

'A witty novel with real heart.' Sunday Telegraph

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

‘'My name is Daniel U. I am a bug tester at Microsoft. Lately I've been unable to sleep…'’

Microserfs: a hilarious, fanatically detailed, and oddly moving audiobook about a handful of misfit Microsoft employees who realise they don't have a life and who subsequently become determined to get lives inside the lightning-paced world of high-tech, 1990's American geek culture. Coupland's quirky ensemble "stick a piece of dynamite inside themselves, like a cartoon cat, in the hope that when they reassemble their exploded pieces they will be somebody different."

Coupland gives listeners an intimate, deadly accurate, and very funny view of a way of life that is quickly becoming the dominant way of life: friends, families, and lovers falling through the trap doors of the new electronic order and involved in an engaging, awkward scramble toward love and success in a brave new world.
