Recommends it for: semiologists, umberto eco, crime readers, fashionistas
A near-future science fiction novel whose protagonist is a semiotic detective: he doesn't look for clues, he reads cultural signs. That such a profession could ever come about is absurd, but the conceit makes for an interesting novel. As well as falling for a dame (naturally), our hero also solves an intricate political crime.

What makes this tale notable is the author's commitment to the idea. Everything is about the significance of forms: sports fixtures are ultimately won or lost by the qualit
