Not my sort of thing. I just can't get on with short stories.

"This collection of stories focuses on technology, the dot-com phenomenon and the wired generation subjects which Kunzru knows from the inside out and which he explores in his highly acclaimed novel Transmission."

(6/10) Another new author (to me) from the very impressive Penguin 70’s anniversary series.

These short stories are difficult to summarise, other than to say that each is a perfectly plotted and paced, and introduce the reader to...ideas...alternative views of the world? I particularly liked the 2 that were least like SF, ‘Deus Ex Machina’ about Guardian Angels and ‘Memories of the Decadence’ which reminded me of a couple of the Borges stories in The Mirror of Ink, a potted history of the ebb and flow of history (a fictional history) with society driven by different obsessions and excesses.

I will definitely look out for Kunzru’s novels.

I have this as a swap so I will pass on; reserved to send as part of a package to a French BCer


Part of a package going to France
