The Game by Alessandro Baricco UP070

Fourteen years after the publication of his cult classic I Barbari, Alessandro Baricco returns in The Game to the topic of change, in a journey that maps out the transformations that the digital revolution has wrought upon the landscape of human experience. From Space Invaders to the PlayStation, from Windows 95 to the conundrum of artificial intelligence, Baricco traces the trajectory of a revolution in the way we think, feel, and communicate - and seeks to discover what it might actually mean for our future.
