Distrust That Particular Flavor

Just a heads-up to say I had a review of William Gibson’s new collection of non-fiction, Distrust That Particular Flavor, in yesterday’s Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. I think collections of non-fiction made up of occasional pieces by novelists are generally to be approached with caution, but this one most definitely isn’t: it’s smart, provocative and offers a genuinely fascinating glimpse of the way Gibson’s thinking has evolved over the past decades.

And if that’s not enough Gibson for you, you might want to check out my reviews of Zero History, Spook Country and Pattern Recognition, as well as a couple of follow-up thoughts about Zero History, and a now rather antique review of All Tomorrow’s Parties.

  1. I didn’t know he had come out with this. Thanks for sharing. Am reading Spook Country at the moment, although I’ve gotten off track with some Philip K Dick. Cheers!

  2. No worries – it’s very worth a look.
