‘The Show’: Google employee’s Novel about Sex, Drugs 


“So yeah, there’s a lot of sex within the company.”

Filip Syta worked as an ad sales executive at Google for two years until 2014, when he became disillusioned with his work. So Syta dropped out and wrote a novel, “The Show,” about a fictional search advertising giant. The story describes a San Francisco company called Show that employs a lot of 20-somethings who make a lot of money, have a lot of parties, drink a lot of booze, sleep with one another indiscriminately, and take a lot of cocaine.

“The Show” was published in January, and Business Insider got hold of an early edition. It tells the story of Victor, who gets an ad sales job at Show but over time becomes depressed with the emptiness of his life, despite the money. Victor gets swept up into a whirl of partying and casual sex while failing to get the attention of another employee, Maggie, whom he has actual feelings for.

The most interesting parts of the book are the sections that deal with the company’s in-house drug dealers, “the drug lords,” and the sections that describe the way Show’s ad sales execs simply make up, or lie about, numbers and statistics for their managers and clients.

The word “Google” is not mentioned in the book. So it’s definitely not about Google, just so everyone is clear!
