#FridayReads -> Square Wave by Mark de Silva



Square Wave by Mark de Silva

Earlier this week, the Atticus Review said Square Wave "might be the closest we get to David Mitchell on LSD." The Millions included it on their first-half 2016 big book preview, saying:

"A dystopian debut set in America with a leitmotif of imperial power struggles in Sri Lanka in the 17th century. Part mystery, part sci-fi thriller, the novel reportedly deals with “the psychological effects of a militarized state upon its citizenry” — highly topical for Americans today."

It's out next month, and to whet your appetite, here's an excerpt from the book.
