Reviews

Praise for Transmission

"Hari Kunzru [has] a skewering wit, wide sympathies and a gimlet eye for the killing or illuminating detail."--The Washington Post

"Kunzru's engagingly wired prose and agile plotting sweep all before them as the characters careen toward ruin."--The New Yorker

"Swiftly paced and cleverly plotted...the ride is exhilarating."--People

"With this second novel...the entertaining Mr. Kunzru makes it even clearer that he has a flair for culture clash and metamorphosis."--The New York Times

"A balance between high comedy and genuine pathos."--Time Out New York

"Kunzru...is as up-to-date as writers come, with interests in technology, pop culture and the economics of globalization. If anyone deserves a shot at breaching the literary space-time continuum and doing what logic says can't be done, it's Kunzru."--The New York Times Book Review
