    Sinopse

    Compared to the likes of Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, Lauren Beuke’s Zoo City and Andrew Miller’s Dub Steps, Selling LipService is a daring novel. Selling LipService introduces its reader to a strange assortment of new vocabulary, and through this touches on the familiar danger of the commercialisation of language. Through a linguistically brilliant text, Tammy Baikie has created a world that exposes a society that has been swallowed up by the ad men. Since coming of haemorrh-age, Frith must wear a LipService patch to write or speak. The words the patch produces are not her own. Scripted by copywriters, they promote one sponsoring brand or another. With them, ‘You’ a voice in her head that is the patch’s brand persona and her conformist alter ego appears. Through the noise of You talking a variety of different LipService brands, Frith struggles to find her way back to speaking for herself. She believes her tastures her ability to taste things she touches are the key. But other elements of this consumerist society are equally interested in tastures for commercial gain.
