Podrobný popis:

Publikace: Bleeding Edge - Thomas Pynchon. It is 2001 in New York City, in the lull between the collapse of

the dotcom boom and the terrible events of September 11th. Silicon

Alley is a ghost town, Web 1.0 is having adolescent angst, Google

has yet to IPO, Microsoft is still considered the Evil Empire.

There may not be quite as much money around as there was at the

height of the tech bubble, but there's no shortage of swindlers

looking to grab a piece of what's left. Maxine Tarnow is running a

nice little fraud investigation business on the Upper West Side,

chasing down different kinds of small-scale con artists. She used

to be legally certified but her licence got pulled a while back,

which has actually turned out to be a blessing because now she can

follow her own code of ethics - carry a Beretta, do business with

sleazebags, hack into people's bank accounts - without having too

much guilt about any of it. Otherwise, just your average working

mum - two boys in elementary school, an off-and-on situation with

her sort of semi-ex-husband Horst, life as normal as it ever gets

in the neighbourhood - till Maxine starts looking into the finances

of a computer-security firm and its billionaire geek CEO, whereupon

things begin rapidly to jam onto the subway and head downtown. She

soon finds herself mixed up with a drug runner in an art deco

motorboat, a professional nose obsessed with Hitler's aftershave, a

neoliberal enforcer with footwear issues, plus elements of the

Russian mob and various bloggers, hackers, code monkeys and

entrepreneurs, some of whom begin to show up mysteriously dead.

Foul play, of course. With occasional excursions into the Deep Web

and out to Long Island, Thomas Pynchon, channelling his inner

Jewish mother, brings us a historical romance of New York in the

early days of the Internet, not that distant in calendar time but

galactically remote from where we've journeyed to since... Publikace: Bleeding Edge - Thomas Pynchon. 'Thomas Pynchon, America's greatest novelist, has written the greatest novel about the most significant events in his country's 21st century history. It is unequivocally a masterpiece.' Stuart Kelly S
