An NPR, San Francisco Chronicle, GQ, Vox, and Buzzfeed Best Book of the Year One of The Washington Post's best science fiction and fantasy books of the year "Exhilarating. . . . A thoughtful, powerful overhaul of the age-old time travel tale." --NPR "With time travel as a fascinating backdrop, Palmer delicately examines the layers of stories we create when trying to differentiate 'the information from the truth.'" --The Washington Post "One of 2016's best science fiction novels. . . . Version Control should be on the reading list of every fan of smart sci-fi." --GQ "Engrossing and strange. . . . A knowing, frequently funny and often very sad novel that explores love, marriage and loss in the age of social media." --San Francisco Chronicle "Brilliant and richly satisfying: a novel that is utterly true to the complicated and science fictional world we live in today." --Buzzfeed
