The literary debut of 2008 - part adventure, part comic opera, part geek nirvana
Nick Harkaway was born in Cornwall in 1972. He studied philosophy, sociology, and politics at Clare College, Cambridge, and then worked in the film industry. The Gone-Away World is his first novel. He lives in London with his wife.
There's a fire in the Jorgmund Pipe, and Gonzo Lubitsch and his pals at the Haulage & HazMat Emergency Civil Freebooting Company had better fix it, or the Gone-Away World is done for. John le Carre's son makes a debut. With a 100,000-copy first printing; national tour. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Genuinely terrifying" * The Times * "A stunning debut" * Scotland on Sunday * "Exuberant...Wildly inventive" -- Michael Gove * The Times *
