OR – Alif the Unseen Signing

Author G. Willow Wilson signs at Powell’s Books on Monday, July 9th at 7:30PM.

In an unnamed Middle Eastern security state, Alif, a young Arab-Indian hacker, protects watched groups from surveillance and tries to stay out of trouble. As the book opens, Alif’s computer has been breached by the Hand, the state’s electronic security force, and the woman Alif loves has jilted him for a prince. When it turns out that the prince is the Hand, and the state security forces come after Alif, he must go underground, all while trying to fight back against a piece of code the Hand is using to create the most sophisticated state surveillance ever developed. Reminiscent of the novels of Neal Stephenson, Philip Pullman, and Neil Gaiman, Alif the Unseen (Grove) is a sophisticated blend of philosophy, technology, and spirituality disguised as an irresistible page-turner.
