About the publication

Are you ready to come together?

Are you tired of typing out your interests and hyping up the details of your everyday life? Imagine then a social network that touches and loves, sweats and farts. Imagine romance in real time. Imagine humans licking rather than double clicking each other. Imagine the Wild World. Are you ready to come together?

Lonely, horny and young, Janek, Anka, Roger and Joe find themselves being dragged out of their isolated existences and towards the promise of a perfect future - in the Wild World. Sex lives and real lives and written lives merge and tangle like wires until reality begins to crumble and the sky falls in...

Reviews

It is heartening to discover that the contemporary novel can still do amazing things... A serious meditation on technology and individualism. Ballardian in scope, and equally as exciting as his brutal debut
