Everyone's excited about the latest from Max Barry, the author of Jennifer GovernmentLexicon was one of this summer's "High-Temperature Reading" recommendations by Lev Grossman in Time: "Imagine, if you will, a secret group of people called Poets who have the power to control others simply by speaking to them.  Barry has, and the result is an extraordinarily fast, funny, cerebral thriller."

Taxation has been abolished, the government has been privatized, and employees take the surname of the company they work for. It's a brave new corporate world, but you don't want to be caught without a platinum credit card--as lowly Merchandising Officer Hack Nike is about to find out. Trapped into building street cred for a new line of $2500 sneakers by shooting customers, Hack attracts the barcode-tattooed eye of the legendary Jennifer Government. A stressed-out single mom, corporate watchdog, and government agent who has to rustle up funding before she's allowed to fight crime, Jennifer Government is holding a closing down sale--and everything must go.
A wickedly satirical and outrageous thriller about globalization and marketing hype, Jennifer Government""is the best novel in the world ever.
