Praise
"William Gibson's fascinating new novel ZERO HISTORY again takes readers to a recent past that feels as if it's just about to happen."
"As always, Gibson's writing is thrillingly tight....This is a disorienting world of nouns--things, that is--are dizzyingly paramount....To read Gibson is to read the present as if it were the future...."
From the Publisher
Annotation William Gibson, known for coining the term "cyberspace" in 1984 in his debut novel, NEUROMANCER, has consistently tempted the threshold of fiction and reality throughout his career. With this novel, ZERO HISTORY, Gibson imagines an all-too-possible present in which high finance and the military and fashion industries mutually reinforce each other through a frighteningly symbiotic relationship. Hubertus Bigend, an insanely rich Swiss businessman, has his greedy nose in every possible piece of lucrative business worldwide. He's quite remarkable that way. He's also a hard man to work for, as rock star-turned-journalist Hollis Henry learned in SPOOK COUNTY (2007). But times are tough, so she accepts another job for him, hunting down a fashion designer. Hollis bumps into Milgrim, a recovered addict also working for Bigend, and the two stumble along as Bigend plays the market. The vision of our world that Gibson presents here--through his characters, the story, and his writing--is one in which readers will feel simultaneously disoriented and right at home.
Editors Note While an ex-singer-turned-journalist unsuccessfully struggles to avoid notice by twisted marketing genius Bigend, a talented Russian linguist emerges from rehabilitation amid Bigend's discovery of an anonymous rival on the global market. By the best-selling author of Spook Country.
