“With this second novel (after The Impressionist, a wildly inventive gallop through the raj with a shape-shifting British-Indian hero), the entertaining Mr. Kunzru makes it even clearer that he has a flair for culture clash and metamorphosis. (...) If Transmission, starts out with an eye for literate social satire that suggests Martin Amis or Zadie Smith, it winds up in a Chuck Palahniuk paranoid daydream of systematic unraveling. (...) Good-humored even when it overheats into a conspiracy-theory finale, Transmission potently reaffirms this author's initial promise.”

Janet Maslin (The New York Times)

A 2004 Vacation Reading (selected by The New York Times)
“A fast-paced up-to-date British novel whose protagonist, a shy young computer programmer in India, moves to America, where he finds the demand for his services far less than he had supposed; thwarted at work (and in love also), he launches a killer computer virus in the hope of becoming a hero by ultimately stopping it. Rotten idea.”

By the author of The Impressionist. 40,000 first printing.
