#042: MaddAddam, Riots

An excerpt from MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood, p.33, read by Steph.


“Physical objects have shacked their tethers; mine, yours, his, hers, and they’ve gone wandering off on their own. It’s like the aftermath of those riots they used to show in documentaries of the early 21st Century, when kids would join phone swarms and then break windows in mob shops, and grab stuff, and what you could have was limited only by what you could carry.”
