9780241972762: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
Críticas:

A paranoid, sarcastic and clattering pop thriller that reads as if it were torn from the damp pages of Glenn Greenwald's fever journal ... Reading [Shafer's] prose is like popping a variant of the red pill in The Matrix : everything gets a little crisper ( New York Times)

Genius techno-­thriller à la Neal Stephenson, powered by social-media info-conspiracy à la Dave Eggers ( Time)

[It's] possible that Shafer is remaking the international thriller... An edgy, darkly comedic debut novel whose characters and premise are as up-to-the-minute as an online news feed ( Kirkus Reviews)

The book's fanciful premise comes to seem eerily plausible: 'How about if a shadow government is filing away everything about you?' ( The New Yorker)

Smart and often very funny ... Shafer etches diamond-sharp and precisely observed contemporary satire ( Salon)

A stylish, absorbing, sharply modern hybrid of techno-thriller and psychodrama that bristles with wit and intellect (Maggie Shipstead, author of 'Seating Arrangements')

Moving, funny, engrossing and blisteringly smart ( Time, Top Ten Fiction Books of 2014)

It is a joy to watch Shafer seamlessly work incisive commentary on contemporary life into a fast-paced spine-chiller ( Daily Beast, The Best Fiction of 2014)

Reseña del editor:

David Shafer's acclaimed Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: A brilliant, visionary and deeply human cyber-thriller

Deep in the forest near Burma's border with China, a young woman sees something she wasn't supposed to see.

In Portland, Oregon, a troubled young man crashes his bicycle on his way to work - and then gets fired.

In New York, a famous self-help author goes on daytime TV - and suddenly conceives 'a book that would take him beyond talk shows'.

What connects these three people - though they don't know it yet - is that they have come to the attention of the Committee, a global cabal that seeks to privatize all information. And each of them will, in their different ways, come to take part in the secret resistance struggle spearheaded by a scarily clever hacktivist collective - a struggle built on radical politics, classic spycraft and eye-popping technology. Along the way, they are forced to confront their own demons, reconsider their values, and contemplate the meaning of love, family, friendship and community. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is at once a page-turning thriller, a deeply absorbing psychological novel, and a visionary exploration of the possibilities and hazards of our online lives.

David Shafer is a graduate of Harvard and the Columbia Journalism School. He has lived in Argentina and Dublin, and worked as a journalist, a carpenter and a taxi driver. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife and children. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is his first book.
