Reading #Autonomous by Annalee Newitz.
Chapter 13 commits what some would consider blasphemy: A backstory inside a flashback, OMG!
Great book, BTW. The beginning is a little choppy, but the whole book really takes you away to this fantastic dystopia of drugs and biomods and corporate slavery. It doesn't feel like Earth, and that's a fantastic accomplishment on its own.
