One guy struggles to outlive in a dystopian near-future long island urban during this acclaimed novel that “performs feats of brilliance on such a lot of degrees” (Entertainment Weekly).
 
In a decaying and violent near-future long island, the remnants of civic order are maintained with brute strength by means of the conglomerate Dryco. yet even Dryco is falling except the interior. Seamus O’Malley is bodyguard and confidant to Mister Dryden, the CEO, and an admirer of Dryden’s own femme fatale, Avalon. yet what starts off as an easy case of unrequited love fast turns into a determined likelihood for survival as company intrigue, murderous kin rivalries, and perverse subcultures take over O’Malley’s life.
 
Drawing comparisons to the nightmarish imaginative and prescient of J. G. Ballard and the linguistic brilliance of Anthony Burgess’s A Clockwork Orange, Ambient marked the “wonderfully creative” debut of Philip ok. Dick Award–winning writer Jack Womack (The long island occasions booklet Review).
 
“Bleakly comic . . . A cynical travel de strength throughout the meanest of streets. Ambient is much less prophecy than documentary, demonstrating how the easiest technology fiction is set as future-oriented as today’s Daily News.” —The Village Voice
 
“[Womack] succeeds in balancing blistering social observation with intelligent literary experimentation . . . Flecked with black humor, this can be speculative fiction at its eerie best.” —Entertainment Weekly
