Editorial Reviews

Review

The Body Scout is the kind of wild, inventive adventure that i’d been searching for. It scratched a special itch: sly and smart, weird and wonderful, all in one package. A little bit Philip K. Dick, and I detect hints of Julio Cortazar too. Lincoln Michel is a wildly talented author and this novel is something special indeed.”―Victor LaValle, author of The Changeling

This novel is delightful in its brio and sharp as a tack in its inventiveness—and yet its greatest, most poignant gift is in asking: What does it mean to inhabit a body? A superb read.―Esmé Weijun Wang, Whiting-Award-winning author of The Collected Schizophrenias

The Body Scout is a fizzy and brilliant confabulation, an anticorporate extrapolative throwdown that is equal parts Pohl-and-Kornbluth and George Saunders, with loads of heart, a skewed and hilarious language all its own, and the audacity to propose that the New York Mets could win a World Series by competent skullduggery. I devoured it.”
 ―Jonathan Lethem, award-winning author of Motherless Brooklyn

 
“Completely weird and still completely real. Delightful—I couldn't put it down."
 ―Shea Serrano, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Basketball (And Other Things)

"A delirious, thrilling ride. I loved Kobo and his bad habits and broken heart, and his world is so weird and wonderful and packed with eye-popping tech that it's easy to miss how much it has to say about our own."
 ―Sam J Miller, Nebula-Award-winning author of Blackfish City

“The Body Scout is like a sci-fi detective novel that a sci-fi detective would write. Like the hybrids and cyborgs who fill this book, Lincoln Michel has the restless brain of Philip K. Dick, the bloodshot eyes of David Cronenberg, the tongue of William Gibson, and a beating heart ripped straight from Raymond Chandler's chest.”
 ―Tony Tulathimutte, Whiting-Award-winning author of Private Citizen

The Body Scout is the best kind of cautionary tale, with urgent things to say about evolution, health care, and human nature. This is a story populated by fantastic characters and worldbuilding, but most importantly: it's a hell of a lot of fun to read.”
 ―Rob Hart, author of The Warehouse

"A wonderfully entertaining and disquieting jaunt through a world both old and new."―Alice Sola Kim, Whiting-Award-winner --This text refers to the paperback edition.
