1 Turn of the Century: A Novel Andersen, Kurt
Very Good. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1999 Random House. Clean and unmarked; pages bright; binding tight; jacket crisp. Only light wear. 659 pages. Language: English. 'A blockbuster fiction debut for media insider Anderson (formerly editor-in-chief of New York magazine, co-founder of Spy), this brilliantly conceived, keenly incisive social satire draws fresh humor out of the overhyped territory of millennial madness. Beginning his myopically futuristic novel on February 28, 2000, Anderson employs a future-present tense in which he mischievously tweaks current attitudes regarding marriage, friendship, the mass media, Wall Street and the computer industry, just to name a handful of his numerous targets. ... George Mactier, executive producer of a controversial TV series called NARCS, and his wife, Lizzie Zimbalist, owner of a computer software company, serve as Anderson's 21st-century poster couple. ... Anderson brilliantly sustains the comic pace throughout the lengthy narrative, though his ultimate message may be disappointing to millennial idealists: The future ain't what it used to be.'--Publishers Weekly, 1999. Keywords: millennium, 21st century.
