Powell's City of Books on Burnside, Portland, OR
William Gibson's first novel since 2010's bestselling Zero History, The Peripheral (Putnam) is described by fellow author Cory Doctorow as, "A piece of trenchant, far-future speculation that features all the eyeball kicks of Neuromancer and all the maturity and sly wit of Spook Country."
Synopses & Reviews
William Gibson, author of the extraordinary multiaward-winning novel Neuromancer, has written his most brilliant and thrilling work to date...
The Mona Lisa Overdrive.
Enter Gibson's unique world — lyric and mechanical, erotic and violent, sobering and exciting — where multinational corporations and high tech outlaws vie for power, traveling into the computer-generated universe known as cyberspace. Into this world comes Mona, a young girl with a murky past and an uncertain future whose life is on a collision course with internationally famous Sense/Net star Angie Mitchell. Since childhood, Angie has been able to tap into cyberspace without a computer. Now, from inside cyberspace, a kidnapping plot is masterminded by a phantom entity who has plans for Mona, Angie, and all humanity, plans that cannot be controlled...or even known. And behind the intrigue lurks the shadowy Yazuka, the powerful Japanese underworld, whose leaders ruthlessly manipulate people and events to suit their own purposes...or so they think.
"Told in a gorgeous, highly compressed almost poetic style that requires the reader's attention and intelligence." Publishers Weekly
