Geeks

Geeks by Jon Katz

by Jonathan Katz

Jesse and Eric are roommates in Idaho, nineteen-year old working-class kids who have virtually no social lives. They spend every cent on their computers, and every spare moment online. Jesse and Eric are geeks–suspicious or disdainful of authority figures, proud of their status as outsiders, fervent in their belief in technology. Geeks tells the story of how these young men are using technology to change their lives, to construct new futures and find a new community where they can belong. (excerpted from the back of the book, copyright 2000, Jon Katz.)
