Josefine Rieks

“Excitingly disturbing: digital dorks, fucked-up freaks, clueless characters — this is the present day, as an archive of the future.”
Jan Brandt

The Internet has been shut down for decades. Its last eyewitnesses are old and mute, and status symbols of the past can be bought as e-waste at bargain prices. Josefine Rieks’ fast-paced, clever novel above all dissects our present times. Reiner is in his mid-twenties and works at the German post office. He is a collector of laptops, but he’s not only an expert on the distant past: the shy computer nerd also founds a youth movement that meets at derelict industrial sites and romanticises what used to exist —the freedom of a society that shared everything. Using a car battery, Reiner manages to connect disused servers. The young people around him get a glimpse of what no one has seen for decades: the Internet.
Serverland presents the story of a future that feels like the past. A debut novel that you will read with wide-open eyes.
