[books] The Gone-Away World

I’m currently reading an ARC of Nick Harkaway’s The Gone-Away World (Knopf, September, 2008). It’s a hell of a book, I have to say.

It’s about what you would have gotten if Booth Tarkington and James Joyce had sobered up and collaborated on some post-apocalyptic cyberpunk.

Full report later when I’m done, but I strongly suggest you go pre-order this sucker from your local bookseller, or Amazon.com, because I think we have a winner here.
