      Art-school dropout Kendra brands herself for a nanotech marketing program; Lerato, an ambitious Aidsbaby, plots to defect from her corporate employers; Tendeka, a hot-headed activist, is becoming increasingly rabid; and rogueish blogger, Toby, discovers that the video games he plays for cash are much more - the narrators of Moxyland are on a collision course that will rewire their lives and the future of Cape Town. Moxyland crackles with bold and infectious ideas, connecting a ruthless corporate-apartheid government with video games, biotech attack dogs, slippery online identities, a township soccer school, shocking cellphones, addictive branding, and genetically modified art. A frighteningly persuasive high-tech fable for South Africa.
