'An eye-opening tale of all the money, sex and drugs washing through the tech world, from someone who has lived it.' - Jim Edwards, Editor-in-Chief, Business Insider UK
Think of the greatest tech company in the world. Imagine getting a job there. Picture the perks: free gourmet food, free booze, a gym, a swimming pool, and a holiday bonus . . . every month. Brilliant coworkers. No dress code. Great parties. More money. Everyone's admiration.
Vic is just like any other Harvard grad out there, except that he just scored a job at tech empire SHOW. But in the hunt for success and happiness, he falls into a shady world of sex, drugs, and swindle. The young tech elites are just as greedy as Wall Street bankers, but all the more cunning. Meanwhile, an office affair is brewing, and his father's absence adds to Vic's decline.
The darker, drug-fueled parallel to Dave Eggers' The Circle, Filip Syta's debut novel, The Show, offers a raw glimpse into the dangerous evolution of the tech world.
