Editorial Reviews

Review

“Spectacular, a piece of trenchant, far-future speculation that features all the eyeball kicks of Neuromancer and all the maturity and sly wit of Spook Country. It’s brilliant.”—Cory Doctorow

“From page one, The Peripheral ticks and sings with the same controlled, dark energy and effortless grace of language...Like the best of Gibson's early, groundbreaking work, it offers up the same kind of chewy, tactile future that you can taste and smell and feel on your skin; that you believe, immediately, like some impossible documentary, because the thing that Gibson has always been best at is offering up futures haunted by the past.”—NPR

More Praise for William Gibson

“His eye for the eerie in the everyday still lends events an otherworldly sheen.”—The New Yorker

“Like Pynchon and DeLillo, Gibson excels at pinpointing the hidden forces that shape our world.”—Details

“William Gibson can craft sentences of uncanny beauty, and is our great poet of crowds.”—San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

“Gibson’s radar is deftly tuned to the changes in the culture that many of us are missing.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
