Description

Join authors Nick Harkaway and Robin Sloan in conversation over Nick's newest book "Gnomon"!
This new book from the widely acclaimed author of The Gone-Away World and Tigerman is a "beguiling, multilayered, sprawling novel that blends elements of Philip K. Dick-tinged sci-fi, mystery, politics, and literary fiction in a most satisfying brew," according to Kirkus Reviews.

In surveying, a gnomon is a set square used to mark right angles on a chart. In the world of Gnomon, citizens are constantly observed and democracy has reached a pinnacle of 'transparency.' Every action is seen, every word is recorded, and the System has access to its citizens' thoughts and memories - all in the name of providing the safest society in history.
