2019 was the year of explosive political memoirs, and if Anna Wiener has her way, you’ll see that trend continue in her upcoming release.
Wiener’s memoir, out January 14, is called Uncanny Valley and details her experience working at tech startups in Silicon Valley.
While companies are unnamed and real-life people appear under pseudonyms, don’t assume that this means Wiener held back on anything.
That, in fact, is why she chose to write a nonfiction piece and not fiction, which could be seen as satire, she explains to the Guardian.
“I don’t know how politically useful satire about the tech industry is in 2019,” she said. “I want this book to be politically useful.”
