Here’s a nice surprise: a glowing review of my new novel Homeland in the WSJ.

“Homeland” is as dead serious as “1984,” as potentially important a “novel of ideas,” with a much more engaging central character and an apparently inexhaustible supply of information on everything from brewing coffee to sneaky surveillance and how to defeat it.

Mr. Doctorow is bang up-to-date (as Orwell never was) on the uses of rapidly changing technology, both good and bad. If you want to keep up, there’s a four-page appendix on how to protect your privacy and use the Net productively—so long as you’re allowed, that is.

    I have yet to read this, but I am sure the review is well deserved! Little Brother is still one of my all-time favorites! I love the insight into the terrible direction the world of surveillance has taken and the casualty of personal privacy. Write on Mr. Doctorow!

    Thank you for continuing to spread the word of the dangers of an all knowing police state! The death of personal privacy is a terrifying and very relevant concern that the masses must be made more aware of!
