Reviews

Praise for ZOEY PUNCHES THE FUTURE IN THE DICK:

[Zoey Punches the Future] is at its best when Wong explores the nature of wealth and power. In the character of Zoey, Wong pushes against the fairy-tale cliche where the downtrodden (through supernatural means or otherwise) are rewarded a life of carefree prosperity. --Locus Magazine

The future is simultaneously familiar and utterly ridiculous in Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick, the second Zoey Ashe thriller from David Wong...a funhouse mirror of modern society viewed through a superhero comic or a James Bond movie...rich with commentary on celebrity culture, social media and toxic masculinity, readers will be laughing too hard for it to ever feel preachy. --Shelf Awareness (starred review) Wong once again achieves the perfect balance between sardonic humor and satirical digs at the digital age... --Library Journal (starred review) Wong sneaks a nuanced examination of the surrealist nature of the digital age into the nonstop action, whipping technological, philosophical, and ethical questions into a wild romp that satirizes everything from the men's rights movement to gaming culture to the cult of celebrity. This is a brilliant modern parable disguised as pop fiction. --Publishers Weekly

Wong's trademark imagination and humor remain but it's his grounded sense of humanity that elevates this work. --Booklist Praise for FUTURISTIC VIOLENCE AND FANCY SUITS:

With verve and velocity, the story moves...one cinematic set piece after another, strung together with twisty fun and wit. --The New York Times Book Review Like Jonathan Swift for the internet age, Wong's novel offers an engrossing journey and razor-sharp wit inside of an uncanny prediction of an American future. His newest is only more proof that he will be remembered as one of today's great satirists. --Nerdist All right, grab some popcorn and strap in. We're in for another profane and funny roller-coaster ride from Wong.
--
Kirkus Reviews Wong unabashedly trolls everyone and lampoons everything in this beautifully outrageous science fiction adventure...Biting humor and blatant digs at modern society overlay a subtly brilliant and thoughtful plot focused on one young woman's growth and survival against all odds. --Publishers Weekly, starred review A sofa clutching read from beginning to end, and a great look at the constantly growing world of social networking. --Starbust, 9 out of 10 stars
