Summary
A young man who is a member of the Eastern Standard Tribe--a secret society bound together by their sleep schedule and communicating via encrypted instant messaging--finds himself incarcerated thanks to his friends and family, who are masquerading as management consultants
Summary
Art is an industrial saboteur who is working on the management of data flow along the Massachusetts Turnpike. He is working on a system that is counterintuitive and user-hostile, to the benefit of his own people, the Eastern Standard Tribe. In a world without boundaries, nothing can be taken for granted, not money or happiness, and certainly not love. So why is Art stranded on the roof of an insane asylum outside Boston, trying to decide whether or not to push a pencil into his brain? Find out in this comedy of loyalty and betrayal, sex and madness by one of science fiction's most artfully innovative writers.
