Agency by William Gibson (2020)
William Gibson has trained his eye on the future for decades, ever since coining the term “cyberspace” and then popularizing it in his classic speculative novel Neuromancer in the early 1980s. Cory Doctorow raved that The Peripheral is “spectacular, a piece of trenchant, far-future speculation that features all the eyeball kicks of Neuromancer.” Now Gibson is back with Agency—a science fiction thriller heavily influenced by our most current events.
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.
