Make Magazine's Phil Torrone has loaded Someone Comes to Town onto his fancy PalmOS watch. I've known intellectually all along that this was theoretically possible, but actually seeing the book on a ferchrissakes watch is pretty wild.

This book dazzles by walking a dangerous high tightrope pulled taut between the widely separated poles of the story. The fairy-tale childhood, with its startling yet archetypically resonant improbabilities, has to consort with the hacker realities of the Kurt-based story, which in itself is not overtly unlikely, but still slightly gonzo. But, like the best mashup tunes, Doctorow’s narrative wedges the most consensually disparate elements together into a brilliant whole.
