One of Time's 100 best English-language novels • A mind-altering romp through a future America so bizarre, so outrageous—you'll recognize it immediately
Only once in a great while does a writer come along who defies comparison—a writer so original he redefines the way we look at the world.

"Brilliantly realized . . . Stephenson turns out to be an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrow."—The New York Times Book Review
