Publisher Description

They are Microserfs—six code-crunching computer whizzes who spend upward of sixteen hours a day "coding" and eating "flat" foods (food which, like Kraft singles, can be passed underneath closed doors) as they fearfully scan company e-mail to learn whether the great Bill is going to "flame" one of them. But now there's a chance to become innovators instead of cogs in the gargantuan Microsoft machine. The intrepid Microserfs are striking out on their own—living together in a shared digital flophouse as they desperately try to cultivate well-rounded lives and find love amid the dislocated, subhuman whir and buzz of their computer-driven world.

Brilliant

Re-reading this book 15 years later reminds me of how Coupland’s brilliant imagination influenced my way of thinking about the world. His ability to layer themes and draw metaphor from the most unsuspecting sources is uncanny. Thanks for this.

Loved it

Can't go wrong with a Coupland novel. I find the dialogue hard to follow at times, but that is the beauty and realness of Coupland's characters. Another great story!
