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, at mortal speed, as Lonnie finds himself in a world he’ll need to join or wither in. Unless he masterminds a vanishing act . . .
From the Man Booker Prize-winning author of Vernon God Little, a humane, deeply empathetic starburst of a satire; the most moving and entertaining exaggeration of the fearful nightmare of trying to raise a kid now.
