Still, we hope that our Issue Summaries will be a valuable tool in.   Uncanny Valley will speak to you as well as any book about millennial culture. Its humor is a proxy for the despair Wiener feels about tech culture’s predicament and her helplessness at doing anything about itUncanny Valley ought to be read by policymakers just as.

      The Uncanny is a unique and original mystery/suspense novel. I was pretty much in awe of the characters throughout the whole book. Andrew Klavan gave them such depth and complexity. Every one of them had a distinct personality full of little idiosyncrasies. The story itself is exciting, full of twists and turns.5/5(5).   But without the frisson of shame, Uncanny Valley would be a completely different book, and not nearly as good. This story isn’t about the history of the region or labor in the tech industry; it’s a self-conscious account of how it feels to climb up near the top of the barrel, where you occasionally lose sight of what it’s like for the 3/4(26).

      Interview: Anna Wiener, Author Of 'Uncanny Valley' Anna Wiener's new memoir chronicles the time she spent working in Silicon Valley tech startups. She says industry narratives tend to be about.
