The tour de force that set the gold standard for dystopian YA fiction — now in a compelling new paperback edition.

For Titus and his friends, it started out like any ordinary trip to the moon — a chance to party during spring break. But that was before the crazy hacker caused all their feeds to malfunction, sending them to the hospital to lie around with nothing inside their heads for days. And it was before Titus met Violet, a beautiful, brainy girl who has decided to fight the feed and its ever-present ability to categorise human thoughts and desires.

M. T. Anderson’s not-so-brave new world is a smart, savage satire that has captivated readers with its view of an imagined future that veers unnervingly close to the here and now.

  • In paperback with an appealing new cover, in conjunction with reissues of Thirsty and Burger Wuss and with the publication of Landscape With Invisible Hand
  • Winner of the L.A. Times Book Award and a National Book Award Finalist
  • A classic of YA dystopian literature, still relevant after 15 years.

"Subversive, vigorously conceived, painfully situated at the juncture where funny crosses into tragic."-- The New York Times Book Review "Another book that can be added to the list entitled 'YA Novels I'd Never Heard of But Which Turn Out to Be Modern Classics' and Feed may well turn out to be the best of the lot . . . Funny, serious, sad, superbly realized." -- Nick Hornby, The Believer "A merciless and very clever satire."-- The New Yorker This satire offers a thought-provoking and scathing indictment that may prod readers to examine the more sinister possibilities of corporate-and media-dominated culture.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) What really puts the teeth in the bite...is Anderson's brillinat satiric vision in the semaless creation of this imagined but believable world. The writing is relentlessly funny, clever in its observations and characters....--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review) The crystalline realization of this wildly dystopic future carries in it obvious and enormous implications for today's readers -- satire at its finest.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) M.T. Anderson has created the perfect device for an ingenious satire of corporate America and our present-day value system...Like those in a funhouse mirror, the reflections the novel shows us may be ugly and distorted, but they are undeniably ourselves.--The Horn Book (starred review) This satire offers a thought-provoking and scathing indictment that may prod readers to examine the more sinister possibilities of corporate-and media-dominated culture.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) What really puts the teeth in the bite...is Anderson's brillinat satiric vision in the semaless creation of this imagined but believable world.
