    2. This book is a mess - but what a mess! As promised on the label, it's cyberpunk, but grimmer and grittier than even Gibson could manage it (than, the protagonist says in the back of my head, any white male English professor raised in comfort could possibly manage it). Technology, conspiracy, and even plot are secondary concerns, ceding place to the vivid characterization and, above all, the lurid, stream-of-consciousness, dream-like (and often nightmarish) descriptions of the world in which thos [...]

    5. "quite simply, everything cyberpunk should have been but wasn't, everything contemporary techno-dystopias should be but aren't. Instead of middle-class white men struggling with their love-hate relationships with dangerous but beautiful cybertoys, Misha offers society's most disenfranchised victims struggling for survival against the technotopic juggernaut. Instead of cyberpunk's typical anti-heroic misogynist-nerd, she gives us a feral female artist struggling to create something meaningful and [...]
