JPod, Douglas Coupland’s most acclaimed novel to date, is a
lethal joyride into today’s new breed of tech worker. Ethan Jarlewski
and five coworkers whose surnames begin with “J” are bureaucratically
marooned in jPod, a no-escape architectural limbo on the fringes of a
massive Vancouver game design company. The jPodders wage daily battle
against the demands of a boneheaded marketing staff, who daily torture
employees with idiotic changes to already idiotic games.
Ethan’s personal life is shaped (or twisted) by phenomena as disparate
as Hollywood, marijuana grow-ops, people-smuggling, ballroom dancing,
and the rise of China. JPod's universe is amoral, shameless, and
dizzyingly fast-paced. Download and start listening now!
