"This is clever sci-fi with a light heart and a winning smile: a killer combination."
"Funny, digressive, dark, and possibly optimistic..."
From the Publisher
Annotation Nick Harkaway's debut novel is chock-full of pop culture references and forays into different genre territories (martial arts, horror, Cold-War thriller, science fiction...). In a post-apocalyptic world, two best friends must put out a fire that's ravaging a pipeline that supplies life-supporting chemicals to the planet. But this is just the jumping off point--the narrative soon goes back in time to elaborate how things got so bad (hint: militaristic thinking and corporate governance).
