The Big UBook - 2001
Casimir Radon's first year at American Megaversity turns out completely different than he had imagined, with bizarre factions, cults, and feuds on campus, in a new edition of the satirical debut novel by the author of Cryptonomicon. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
The New York Times Book Review called Neal Stephenson's most recent novel "electrifying" and "hilarious". but if you want to know Stephenson was doing twenty years before he wrote the epic Cryptonomicon, it's back-to-school time. Back to The Big U, that is, a hilarious send-up of American college life starring after years our of print, The Big U is required reading for anyone interested in the early work of this singular writer.
