Description:
'Max Barry is an outstanding satirical comedy writer, reliably smart and funny. That's why I hate him.' Julian Morrow

When a scientist Charles Neumann loses a leg in an industrial accident, it's not a tragedy. It's an opportunity. Charlie always thought his body could be better. His employer, military contractor Better Future, has the resources he needs to explore a few ideas. So he begins to build parts. Better parts.

Charlie's prosthetist, Lola, is impressed by his artificial limbs. But some see him as a madman. Others, a product. Or even a weapon.

Existing at the intersection between mind and body, in the dawn of the age of pervasive technology, Machine Man is a gruesomely funny tale about one man's quest for the ultimate in self-improvement.

'From the first pages, Machine Man grabs the reader in an industrial clamp that doesn't let go until the ripping conclusion.'
Tony Wilson

'Max Barry writes satire so sharp and prescient that sometimes I fear he is only giving the bad guys more ideas.'
Wil Anderson
