9781846558658: Book of Numbers
Revue de presse :

"Joshua Cohen’s novel Book of Numbers reads as if Philip Roth’s work were fired into David Foster Wallace’s inside the Hadron particle collider… Book of Numbers is more impressive than all but a few novels published so far this decade. Mr. Cohen, all of 34, emerges as a major American writer" (Dwight Garner The New York Times)

"This is an astounding undertaking. In Book of Numbers the wizardly Joshua Cohen relocates the line between tragedy and comedy. His lurid and high-achieving characters create and suffer the Internet – which is now tightening around us all. I don’t know of any other work like this one" (Norman Rush)

"The single best novel yet written about what it means to remain human in the Internet Era" (Adam Ross)

" Book of Numbers is a lot of things – a disquisition on and aping of the Internet, a dissection of friendship and romance in the Digital Age, and a doppelgänger tale – but for me it’s most poignant as an elegy for the written word, and as a rebuke to its decline" (Joshua Ferris)

"Cohen is one of the most intelligent, witty, and moving writers we have, and Book of Numbers is his most magnificent and ambitious book. This novel illuminates the mysterious and near-invisible landscape of right now" (Rivka Galchen)

"An ambitious and inspired attempt at the Great American Internet Novel... Cohen’s encyclopedic epic is about many things – language, art, divinity, narrative, desire, global politics, surveillance, consumerism, genealogy – but it is above all a standout novel about the Internet, humanity’s ‘first mutual culture,’ in which our identities are increasingly defined by a series of ones and zeroes" ( Publishers Weekly, starred review)

"Cohen riffs impressively on countless Web-related matters, from chaos to code to venture capital to Y2K... [He] also recognizes the laughs and peril at this technologically challenging stage of the human comedy and its new questions about what people are searching for, how the results may affect them, and what it all may cost" ( Kirkus Reviews, starred review)

"To sum this up in Web terms, he'll make you want to be an angel investor in his stuff. What's a book but a public offering? You'll want to be in on the ground floor" (Dwight Garner The New York Times)

"Intelligent, lyrical, prosaic, theoretical, pragmatic, funny, serious. [Cohen's] best prose does everything at once" (James Wood)

"In Mr Cohen's hands, a meme is a matter of life and death, because he goes from the reality we know - the link, the click - to the one we tend to forget: the human... Mr. Cohen is ambitious. He is mapping terra incognita" ( The New York Observer)

"Cohen, a key member of the United States' under-40 writers' club (along with Nell Freudenberger and Jonathan Safran Foer), is a rare talent who makes highbrow writing fun and accessible" ( Marie Claire)

"[Cohen has] manifold talents at digging under and around absurdity... Language - not elision - is the primary material of Cohen's oeuvre, and his method of negotiating his way toward meaning is like powering straight through a thick wall of words... The reward is an off-kilter precision, one that feels both untainted and unique" (Rachel Kushner The New York Times Book Review)

"Like [David Foster] Wallace, Cohen is clearly concerned wtih the depersonalizing effects of technology, broken people doing depraved things, and how the two intersect in tragic (and, sometimes, hilarious) ways. The franticness with which he writes about these themes is, at times, Wallace-esque" ( The Boston Globe)

"What dazzles here is a Pynchonesque verbal dexterity, the sonic effect of exotic vocabulary, terraced sentences robust pusn and metaphors and edgy, Tarantino-like dialogue" ( Review of Contemporary Fiction)

"In Mr. Cohen’s hands, a meme is a matter of life and death, because he goes from the reality we all know?the link, the click?to the one we tend to forget: the human. . . . Cohen is ambitious. He is mapping terra incognita" (The New York Observer)

"Enthralling… Awe-inspiring" ( Skinny)

"Cohen is immensely clever, witty, and indeed funny. He also knows about technology, and thus his novel deals with the world in the age of the internet" (Colm Toibin Daily Mail summer reading)

" Book of Numbers brilliantly and rigorously examines a question that confronts literature today: What does the explosion of information from the internet mean for the future of storytelling?" (Matthew Zeitlin Buzzfeed)

"A hugely ambitious novel set in the high-tech world of now. It is a verbal high-wire act, daring in its tones and textures: clever, poetic, fast-moving, deeply playful, filled with jokes, savvy about machines, wise about people, dazzling and engrossing" (Colm Toibin Guardian)

"Fascinating...for chutzpah alone, Cohen's chaotic fantasia certainly impresses" ( Observer)

"Frequently amazing, [it is] the first work of fiction to engage fully with the internet and its influence on modern living" ( New Scientist)

"· deliriously entertaining... [Cohen] has proven himself to be a bold and fearless writer" ( Economist)

"There are wonderful things here cloaked with an invisibility spell, tucked away in the middle of the book, where only the stubbornest seeker after enchantment will find them" (Adam Mars-Jones London Review of Books)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

A monumental, uproarious, and exuberant novel about the search?for love, truth, and the meaning of Life With The Internet

Limited First Edition comes with exclusive fold-out jacket poster

The enigmatic billionaire founder of Tetration, the world’s most powerful tech company, hires a failed novelist, Josh Cohen, to ghostwrite his memoirs. The mogul, known as Principal, brings Josh behind the digital veil, tracing the rise of Tetration, which started in the earliest days of the Internet by revolutionizing the search engine before venturing into smartphones, computers, and the surveillance of global citizens. Principal takes Josh on a mind-bending world tour from Palo Alto to Dubai and beyond, initiating him into the secret pretext of the autobiography project and the life-or-death stakes that surround its publication.

Insider tech exposé, leaked memoir-in-progress, international thriller, family drama, sex comedy, and biblical allegory, Book of Numbers renders the full range of modern experience both online and off. Embodying the Internet in its language, it finds the humanity underlying the virtual.

Featuring one of the most unforgettable characters in contemporary fiction, Book of Numbers is an epic of the digital age, a triumph of a new generation of writers, and one of those rare books that renew the idea of what a novel can do.

Please note that Book of Numbers uses a special pagination system inspired by binary notation: the section number precedes the page number, and is separated from it by a decimal point.
