In Doctorow’s third novel, Alan helps his friend Kurt provide free wireless to their whole neighborhood in Toronto through a dumpster diving scheme. Not quite human himself (his father is a mountain and his mother a washing machine), Alan also befriends his unusual neighbor Mimi, whose boyfriend amputates her wings every three months.

You don't get this mix, of the surreal with real-world public-policy, from too many people

Weird book, but it definitely kept me coming back! I cannot even describe the story. You just have to read it for yourself.

Protagonist: the outsider who, as Doctorow said in 'Craphound', loves our culture's cast-offs and sees them as poems. The structure, also, is bits and pieces interestingly rearranged. My favorite part: the cast of characters- brothers A through G and his father the mountain, his mother the washing machine. The day I finished reading this, I picked up Gene Wolfe's The Evil Guest..and there one character took another one to a sentient mountain whose wife was 'let's just say a laundress'. Thanks for the plate o' shrimp!
