Meanwhile in Dopamine City

ebook

***Shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize 2020***

FROM THE BOOKER PRIZE-WINING AUTHOR OF VERNON GOD LITTLE

'Pierre's high-risk prose explores and expands the cartoonish, taboo-busting outer edges of literary possibility.' — Independent

***

It's a big bad world out there, in Dopamine City.

All Lonnie Cush wants is to keep his kids safe.

But Shelby-Ann - his little girl, the maddening apple of his eye - has other ideas: Shelby-Ann wants her first smartphone.

So new realities are rocketing their way to 37 Palisade Row, where everything will change, every day, and at mortal speed. Until Lonnie finds himself in a stitch: he'll have to join this new world, or wither in it. Or can he mastermind a vanishing act?

The story of a hapless father's love and loss, and a speedball, starburst satire, Meanwhile in Dopamine City is a passionate, freewheeling work from the winner of the Booker Prize: a riotous cry for the soul and the flesh and the heart in the cooling bathwater of our automatic times.
