Welcome back to 1999. Jacob van Duijn's new novel 'Hyper' chronicles the height of the internet hype in Amsterdam through the eyes of a honey voiced consultant with an inflated bank account. Sound familiar? It is, and pretty funny too.
The fast lane madness soon turns into disorientation when this hero, roused by an ephemeral dream girl, embarks on a feverish quest east in search of the ultimate anecdote, "a gutter experience" -- i.e. a hint of his own identity.
