Product Details


“A flat-out ferociously good novel…. Reads like a surrealist smashup of Pynchon and Pratchett, Vonnegut and Heller.”

Austin Chronicle


“Harkaway delivers plenty of action and surprises…. Likely to be this season’s major conversation-starter.”

San Francisco Chronicle


“A gripping, satirical, postapocalyptic war epic populated with mimes, ninjas, bureaucrats, chimera, and gun-toting nerds.”

New YorkMagazine


“Very funny and hugely entertaining. . . . And brilliant. Read it.”

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel


“Bewilders, amazes, entertains. . . . a Catch-22 for the 21st century. . . . a work of extraordinary imagination and charisma. . . genius”

The New York Observer


“Leaves the reader gasping for both adjectives and description. It’s a powerful and accomplished first novel that weaves elements of romance, mystery, SF/F and — yes — thriller together in a way that leaves no doubt that the master storyteller gene really is something that can be passed along.”

January Magazine


“Vivid and exciting. Harkaway manages to meld a vision of war more germane to today’s world, and take it to its most horrifying, apocalyptic conclusion.”
