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.
