Overview

Named a Best Book of the Year by NPR​

In this "wise and wickedly funny novel about love, creativity, and the limitations of the tech-verse" (Vogue) newlyweds Asha and Cyrus find themselves running one of the most popular social media platforms in the world.

Meet Asha Ray. Brilliant coder and possessor of a Pi tattoo, Asha is poised to make a scientific breakthrough when she is reunited with her high school crush, Cyrus Jones.

Before she knows it, Asha has abandoned her lab, exchanged vows with Cyrus, and gone to work at an exclusive tech incubator called Utopia to develop an app called WAI--"We are Infinite."

WAI creates a sensation, with millions of users logging on every day. Will Cyrus and Asha's marriage survive the pressures of sudden fame, or will she become overshadowed by the man everyone is calling the new messiah?

This "scathing--and hilarious--take on startup culture, marriage and workaholism" (Politico) explores whether or not technology--with all its limits and possibilities--can disrupt modern love.
