Pattern Recognition by William GibsonRead about the other entries on the list.
In his 2003 masterpiece, Gibson directed his microscopically precise prose at the present day. He describes the everyday experiences of this moment — jet lag, email, online chat rooms, global branding campaigns — as if they were from the far future, revealing the unique strangeness of the era we live in.
Pattern Recognition is among Damien Walter's five science fiction novels for people who hate SF and David Ulin's five essential 9/11 books.
Learn about why Gibson decided to set Pattern Recognition in the present, unlike his previous novels.
