Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
Three clever book editors, inspired by an extraordinary fable they heard years before, decide to have a little fun. Randomly feeding esoteric bits of knowledge into an incredible computer capable of inventing connections between all their entires, they think they are creating a long lazy game--until the game starts taking over....
Here is an incredible journey of thought and history, memory and fantasy, a tour de force as enthralling as anything Umberto Eco--or indeed anyone--has ever devised.
"...Great are the rewards for those who actually manage to read it...It is a truly formidable gathering of information delivered playfully by a master manipulating his own invention."
Anthony Burgess, New York Times Book Review, 10/15/89
