A propos de cet article

Octavo, boards. First edition. BUG JACK BARRON "is a story about politics, big business and television in the USA of the near future, and it has some tough things to say about power and corruption -- but what made it seem so innovative was that it was the first SF novel to use four-letter obscenities profusely and to describe sexual acts in explicit detail . This is a novel about living in a media landscape, and the prose is intended to convey the all-embracing, ever-changing qualities of the electronic media. Frequently over-the-top, occasionally sentimental, for the most part it works surprisingly well." - Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 62. It "remains significant as an early examination of the growing media and their manipulators." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 4-428. The "foundation-stone of a long argument which Spinrad was to extend in such works as A WORLD BETWEEN (1979) and PICTURES AT 11 (1995)." - Fortunati and Trousson (eds), Dictionary of Literary Utopias, pp. 95-6. 1969 Nebula and 1970 Hugo nominee for best novel. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1058. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 321. Survey of Science Fiction Literature I, pp. 265-71. A fine copy in nearly fine dust jacket with just a touch of general dust soiling to white areas, mainly rear panel. A nice copy. (#139612). N° de réf. du libraire 139612
