The Great American Internet Novel

numbersIn The Book of Numbers by Joshua Cohen, an enigmatic millionaire hires a struggling writer to ghost his memoirs.  The millionaire is a secretive tech executive who has more on his mind than a celebrity puff piece. The writer soon finds himself initiated into the secret pretext of the autobiography project as he is jetted from Palo Alto to Dubai and beyond.  Cohen riffs impressively on countless Web-related matters, from chaos to code to venture capital as he probes both the humor and peril in this “technologically challenging stage of the human comedy.”  This is an “ a wheeling meditation on the wired life, on privacy, on what being human in the age of binary code might mean (NYT).
