Exit Strategy: A Novel
Set in the near-future (2008), Exit Strategy is a darkly comic send-up of the dot.com mania of the late 1990s and a modern-day retelling of the story of Joseph. Like Joseph, Jamie Cohen is betrayed by his compadres but unexpectedly finds himself at the right hand of power. He helps a huge venture capitalist build pyramids - except these are investment pyramids based on technology idols. An additional narrative conceit is this: 200 years later, anthropologists find the virtual manuscript of Exit Strategy and begin annotating the text. Hundreds of readers have already contributed footnotes for the book - they are charming, wacky, compelling and Rushkoff has selected one hundred of his favorites for inclusion.
