`Dazzling and engrossing' Colm Toibin, Guardian A Granta Best Young American Author Book of Numbers is a novel about two men of the same age and with the same name: Joshua Cohen. The first Joshua is a writer whose keenly anticipated debut had the bad luck to be published on September 11, 2001. The other Joshua is the enigmatic billionaire Founder and CEO of the world's most profitable tech company. Autobiography, family memoir, phoned-in ghostwriting, international thriller, sex comedy - Book of Numbers brings to life the full range of modern experience in the course of its epic journey.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Joshua Cohen's novel Book of Numbers reads as if Philip Roth's work were fired into David Foster Wallace's inside the Hadron particle collider...Book of Numbers is more impressive than all but a few novels published so far this decade. Mr. Cohen, all of 34, emerges as a major American writer" -- Dwight Garner * The New York Times *

"A hugely ambitious novel set in the high-tech world of now. It is a verbal high-wire act, daring in its tones and textures: clever, poetic, fast-moving, deeply playful, filled with jokes, savvy about machines, wise about people, dazzling and engrossing" -- Colm Toibin * Guardian *
"Intelligent, lyrical, prosaic, theoretical, pragmatic, funny, serious. [Cohen's] best prose does everything at once" -- James Wood
"Book of Numbers is a lot of things - a disquisition on and aping of the Internet, a dissection of friendship and romance in the Digital Age, and a doppelganger tale - but for me it's most poignant as an elegy for the written word, and as a rebuke to its decline" -- Joshua Ferris
