A GUARDIAN BOOK OF THE YEAR '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 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.

Emile Delaurier ist ein wunderbar militanter Revolutionär, ein Leuchtfeuer der Gerechtigkeit für die ganze Welt. Für Renaire, einen Künstler im stetigen Kampf gegen die Flasche, war es Besessenheit auf den ersten Blick. Seine Hingabe hat zu zwei Jahren tödlicher Partnerschaft geführt, bei der Renaire Delaurier auf seinem unbarmherzigen Weg zur Gleichheit wie ein mörderischer Robin Hood gefolgt ist. Doch dann ändert Delaurier plötzlich sein Muster und nimmt Renaire mit nach Russland, um eine Journalistin ohne jede unmoralische Vergangenheit zu töten, und ohne seine Tat zu erklären. Als Interpol Kontakt zu Renaire aufnimmt, hat er eigentlich schon genug Probleme – Delaurier am Leben erhalten, mit ihrer veränderten Beziehung klarkommen und seine eigene Vergangenheit überleben, die ihn immer noch verfolgt. Doch als er erfährt, was Interpol von ihm will, muss Renaire der Wahrheit über Delaurier ins Gesicht sehen: dass ein edler Mann nicht immer ein guter Mann ist. Er steht vor einer Entscheidung, die kein Mann jemals treffen sollte – soll er seinem Herzen oder seiner Moral folgen?

Auftritt für einen Superhelden der besonderen Art Giftiger Regen, der den Kindern die Stimme raubt. Ein unterirdisch brodelndes toxisches Gemisch, das an die Oberfläche drückt – das Ökosystem der Insel Mancreu ist dank skrupelloser Chemiekonzerne komplett verseucht. Die internationale Gemeinschaft beschließt die Zerstörung der Insel, was allerlei Gesindel auf der Jagd nach schnellem Profit anzieht. Eine echte Herausforderung für Ordnungshüter Lester Ferris. Und dann ist da noch der Junge: ein Comicbuch-verrücktes Straßenkind, das Lester als Herz gewachsen ist. Er hat sich geschworen, ihn zu beschützen – und muss zu einem außergewöhnlichen Helden werden. Auch in Nick Harkaways neuem Roman spielt wieder ein Ensemble skurriler, fein gezeichneter Figuren auf, angeführt von einem ziemlich angekratzten Superhelden, der der Grenze zwischen Gut und Böse mehr als einmal gefährlich nahe kommt.

But he never expected that the sundial he and his friends discovered buried on top of their favourite go-carting hill, would transport them into an astonishing future they helped to create.

Suspicious Readings of Joyce's "Dubliners"

Because the stories in James Joyce's Dubliners seem to function as models of fiction, they are able to stand in for fiction in general in their ability to make the operation of texts explicit and visible. Joyce's stories do this by provoking skepticism in the face of their storytelling. Their narrative unreliabilities—produced by strange gaps, omitted scenes, and misleading narrative prompts—arouse suspicion and oblige the reader to distrust how and why the story is told. As a result, one is prompted to look into what is concealed, omitted, or left unspoken, a quest that often produces interpretations in conflict with what the narrative surface suggests about characters and events. Margot Norris's strategy in her analysis of the stories in Dubliners is to refuse to take the narrative voice for granted and to assume that every authorial decision to include or exclude, or to represent in a particular way, may be read as motivated. Suspicious Readings of Joyce's Dubliners examines the text for counterindictions and draws on the social context of the writing in order to offer readings from diverse theoretical perspectives. Suspicious Readings of Joyce's Dubliners devotes a chapter to each of the fifteen stories in Dubliners and shows how each confronts the reader with an interpretive challenge and an intellectual adventure. Its readings of "An Encounter," "Two Gallants," "A Painful Case," "A Mother," "The Boarding House," and "Grace" reconceive the stories in wholly novel ways—ways that reveal Joyce's writing to be even more brilliant, more exciting, and more seriously attuned to moral and political issues than we had thought.
