Publisher's Summary

Nasim is a young computer scientist working on Zendegi; a virtual world used by millions. When a map of every neural connection to the human brain is published, Nasim decides to exploit it to fill Zendegi with Proxies: the bit-players that bring its crowd scenes to life. Then a friend with terminal cancer begs Nasim to make a Proxy of him, but Zendegi is about to become a battlefield...

    "Great book"

    This is a wonderful book, I've listened to it four times now. There's never a glib or self-indulgent moment, it's as profound as it's subtle. It takes the reader to through the central idea 'side-loading', preparing the ground, without exposition, deftly through the transformation from audio, to avian song. from cricketer to the desperate grieving father, who is poignant not haunted by the memories of his wife, as he comes to terms with his own mortality. Egan challenges scientific triumphalism as eloquent as Stanislaw Lem, who for me is the only writer of sf in his class.
