Uncanny Valley—adapted from a widely read and celebrated essay in n+1 Issue 25—is a rare first-person glimpse into Silicon Valley’s reckless startup culture at a time of unchecked ambition, rapacious greed, unregulated surveillance, and accelerating political power. Jia Tolentino calls it “diagnostic and exhilarating, a definitive document of a world in transition.” In the New York Times, Jennifer Szalai writes that “Wiener’s storytelling mode is keen and dry, her sentences spare—perfectly suited to let a steady thrum of dread emerge.” The book is available for purchase from the n+1 store, and all copies come signed by Wiener.
