Gnomon

89,00 kn

Near-future Britain is a state in which citizens are constantly observed and democracy has reached a pinnacle of `transparency.` Every action is seen, every word is recorded and the System has access to thoughts and memories. When suspected dissident Diana Hunter dies in custody, it marks the first time a citizen has been killed during an interrogation. Mielikki Neith, a trusted state inspector, is assigned to find out what went wrong. Immersing herself in neural recordings of the interrogation, what she finds isn`t Hunter but rather a panorama of characters within Hunter`s psyche. Embedded in the memories of these impossible lives lies a code which Neith must decipher to find out what Hunter is hiding. The staggering consequences of what she finds will reverberate throughout the world. `Gnomon is an extraordinary novel, and one I can`t stop thinking about some weeks after I read it. It is deeply troubling, magnificently strange, and an exhilarating read.` Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven `Nick Harkaway`s most ambitious novel yet. [A] story of near-future mass surveillance, artificial intelligence and human identity ... An amazing and quite unforgettable piece of fiction.` Guardian `Harkaway dazzles.` Daily Mail `Wonderfully good.` Sunday Times
