Transmission by Hari Kunzru

In Transmission, Arjun Mehta is an Indian programmer who comes to Silicon Valley in search of the American dream at the same time American jobs are being outsourced to his country. Naive and unprepared for the realities of American high technology jobs, Arjun goes from job to job until he eventually works for an antivirus company. Hoping to keep his job, he launches a computer virus through the internet, expecting to become the hero when he stops it later. Unfortunately, he can't and events spiral out of control. The effects are felt world-wide, including affecting his favorite Bollywood actress back in India. Hari Kunzru (author of The Impressionist) unleashes a story both comical and scary in its depiction of the global economy. Transmission has received mostly positive reviews with The San Jose Mercury News saying, "Transmission is a dazzle of wit and color and snark."
