Neuromancer by William Gibson (1984)
Before the Internet was commonplace, William Gibson showed us the Matrix—a world within the world, the representation of every byte of data in cyberspace. Henry Dorsett Case was the sharpest data-thief in the Matrix, until an ex-employer crippled his nervous system. Now a new employer has recruited him for a last-chance run against an unthinkably powerful artificial intelligence. With a mirror-eyed girl street-samurai riding shotgun, he’s ready for the silicon-quick, bleakly prophetic adventure that upped the ante on an entire genre of fiction.
Multiple copies of the book are available at the library. Pam Bedore, Associate Professor of English at the University of Connecticut, Avery Point, will lead this series. Please register in advance for this online Zoom event by visiting our website’s Calendar of Events.
