Gamelife is part memoir of childhood, part meditation on the imaginative world of computer games - and altogether wonderful, luminous and profound. Structured in seven chapters, around seven PC games that took on an almost religious significance in the author's life, it captures the essential strangeness of childhood, when the world is still revealing itself. It re-creates a place - 1980s suburban Illinois, John Hughes movie territory - in all its quotidian glory. And it explores how the ephemeral worlds of video games gave shape to a boy's days.
