Summary, etc.:
"The Candy House opens with the staggeringly brilliant Bix Bouton,'a tech demi-god on a first name basis with the world.' Bix is forty, with four kids, restless, desperate for a new idea, when he stumbles into a conversation group, mostly Columbia professors, one of whom is experimenting with downloading or 'externalizing memory. It's 2010. Within a decade, Bix's new technology, "Own Your Unconscious"--which allows you access to every memory you've ever had, and to share your own in exchange for access to the memories of others--has seduced multitudes. But not everyone. Egan spins out the consequences of Own Your Unconscious through the lives of multiple characters whose paths intersect over several decades..."--Jacket flap.
