MeatspaceBook - 2015
In a time when everyone is obsessed with and defined by their online personas, this clever and sharp novel by Nikesh Shukla dares readers to question who they actually are when they're not on Facebook but rather face to face. Meatspace is the world of flesh and blood where you're physically present. It's the opposite of cyberspace. Kitab and Aziz are brothers living together in London who are as fully plugged in to the grid as it's possible to be. They obsessively check and update their many channels of connection, are slaves to the hourly updates, and are unable to last an entire conversation without checking their phones for texts, emails and Tweets.
