From the two-time Booker Prize winner: an exhilarating, exceedingly timely new novel–at once dark, suspenseful, and seriously funny–that journeys to the place where the cyber underworld collides with international power politics.

When Gaby Baillieux released the Angel Worm virus into Australia’s prison system, hundreds of asylum seekers walked free. And because the Americans run the prisons – as they do so many parts of her country – the doors of some 5,000 jails in the US also opened.

Was this a mistake, or a declaration of cyber war?

Would you ever tell the truth – the real, honest-to-goodness truth – in your annual holiday letter?

For the past thirty-three years, Angela Gillespie has sent to friends and family around the world an end-of-the-year letter titled “Hello from the Gillespies.” It’s always been cheery and full of good news. This year, Angela surprises herself—she tells the truth …

The Gillespies are far from the perfect family that Angela has made them out to be. Without Angela, the family would fall apart.

New York is toxic—decimated by a dirty bomb years ago. The limnosphere is a virtual safe haven—if you’re rich enough to buy in. Spademan is a hit man—box-cutter at the ready.

His latest job is to snuff out Lesser, a lowlife lurking around other people’s fantasies. As Spademan is about to close the deal, Lesser comes back from the limn with a wild claim: terrorists are planning to attack New York. Again. This time from the inside out.

Spademan has always had his share of enemies, but now they’re coming at him from all sides and it’s impossible to know whom to trust.

We all have some crazy bit of trivia we like to share and astonish our friends. What’s yours?

The winner of the 2014 Man Booker prize will be unveiled tonight (October 14, 2014) in a ceremony in Guildhall, London. We’re thrilled to share an excerpt from one of the finalists: J by Howard Jacobson.

J is a dystopia that invites comparison with George Orwell’s 1984 and Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.” –Sunday Times
