The stunning sequel to Eggers' book The Circle, this McSweeney's edition is only being sold to independent bookstores to sell to our discerning customers. The cover featured here isn't necessarily the cover that you get -- it's a surprise! But it's definitely a hardcover.
When the world's largest search engine/social media company, the Circle, merges with the planet's dominant e-commerce site, it creates the richest and most dangerous-and, oddly enough, most beloved-monopoly ever known: the Every.Delaney Wells is an unlikely new hire. A former forest ranger and unwavering tech skeptic, she charms her way into an entry-level job with one goal in mind: to take down the company from within. With her compatriot, the not-at-all-ambitious Wes Kavakian, they look for the company's weaknesses, hoping to free humanity from all-encompassing surveillance and the emoji-driven infantilization of the species. But does anyone want what Delaney is fighting to save? Does humanity truly want to be free? Studded with unforgettable characters and lacerating set pieces, The Every blends satire and terror, while keeping the reader in breathless suspense about the fate of the company-and the human animal. The Every will be available in a dizzying array of cover variations.
