The gone-away world

Nick Harkaway (1972-) is one of my favourite authors. As soon as I spot he has a book out that gets added to my Must read pile. I love his blend of humour and action, although I don’t think it is to everyone’s taste. His website is http://www.nickharkaway.com/ and you should go read his books.
