    Inhaltsangabe

    Transmission, Hari Kunzru's new novel of love and lunacy, immigration and immunity, introduces a daydreaming Indian computer geek whose luxurious fantasies about life in America are shaken when he accepts a California job offer.

    Lonely and naive, Arjun Mehta spends his days as a lowly assistant virus tester and pining away for his free-spirited colleague Christine. Arjun gets laid-off like so many of his Silicon Valley peers. In an act of desperation to keep his job, he releases a mischievous but destructive virus around the globe that has major unintended consequences. As world order unravels, so does Arjun's sanity, in a rollicking cataclysm that reaches Bollywood and, not so coincidentally, the glamorous star of Arjun's favorite Indian movie.

    Award-winning novelist Hari Kunzru was hailed as a "modern-day Kipling," for his bestselling debut, The Impressionist. With this exuberant follow-up, Kunzru takes an ultracontemporary turn in a stylish, playful, and wicked exploration of life at the click of a mouse.

    ©2004 Hari Kunzru (P)2004 Simon and Schuster Inc. AUDIOWORKS, is an imprint of Simon & Schuster Audio, a division of Simon & Schuster Inc.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Delectable...Mr. Kunzru writes with wry certitude and cinematic precision." (The New York Times)
    "A sprawling, ambitious, shape-shifting novel...Kunzru proves himself a clever, sharply observant writer...much more than a brilliant satirist." (The Washington Post)
