Transmission

De (autor)
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 30 Jun 2005
Hari Kunzru's Transmission is a witty novel about cyberspace, a Bollywood dancer and a world where everyone is connected.
It's the twenty-first century, and everything and everyone is connected.
Meet Arjun Mehta, an Indian cybergeek catapulted into California's spiralling hi-tech sector; Leela Zahir, beguiling Bollywood actress filming in the midge-infested Scottish wilds; and Guy Swift, hyped-up marketing exec lost in a blue-sky tomorrow of his own devising. Three dislocated individuals seeking nodes of connectivity - a place to fit in. Yet this is the twenty-first century, and their lives are about to become unexpectedly entangled as a virus spreads, and all their futures are rewired. But will it take them further from their dreams, or closer to their hearts?
'An aphoristic joke, a neat turn of phrase; a joke that makes you laugh . . . there's nothing Kunzru couldn't manage in prose. Thoroughly engrossing' Literary Review
'Funny, heartfelt and beautifully written, confirms Kunzru as one of the most talented writers of his generation' Image
'Very enjoyable, I couldn't put it down. Funny and wry; it is deftly plotted; its characters intimately drawn. Blissful' Observer
'Utterly affecting, a novel with devastating satirical bite' Financial Times
Hari Kunzru is the author of the novels The Impressionist, Transmission, My Revolutions and Gods Without Men, and the story collection Noise. He lives in New York.

Recenzii

"Hari Kunzru [has] a skewering wit, wide sympathies and a gimlet eye for the killing or illuminating detail." —The Washington Post



"Kunzru’s engagingly wired prose and agile plotting  sweep all before them as the characters careen toward ruin." —The New Yorker



Swiftly paced and cleverly plotted…the ride is exhilarating. —People



"With this second novel…the entertaining Mr. Kunzru makes it even clearer that he has a flair for culture clash and metamorphosis." —The New York Times



"A balance between high comedy and genuine pathos." —Time Out New York



"Kunzru…is as up-to-date as writers come, with interests in technology, pop culture and the economics of globalization.  If anyone deserves a shot at breaching the literary space-time continuum and doing what logic says can’t be done, it’s Kunzru." —The New York Times Book Review
