As per the publisher: The Richard Brautigan's poem that lends its title to this book was written 50 years ago but its arcadian, digital utopia hasn't yet come to be: in 2019, the technosphere holds Man at it's center and Nature (whatever that is) at its margins . The book you hold in your hands documents the dynamics we articulate amid the solipsistic circle of cyberspace: from work to healthcare, from longing to identity, the digital mantle encompasses all beats of life and every connection we establish while we're around. After all, even though we can barely hear the insects in the forests, providing the connection's good, we can still hear the "Likes" pinging on our profile picture. Ping. Someone's watching. In Portuguese with English translation.
