Martin Perlman - Thinks Out Loud

In Thinks Out Loud: A Blog at First, Seattle author Martin Perlman writes what may be the most accurate portrait of Seattle in the present moment. Evoking the hard sci-fi stylings associated with fellow Seattle author Neal Stephenson, Perlman uproariously skewers start-up culture in a novel that will strike true to any Seattleite. This form-breaking novel is written in blog format, hence the subtitle, and even features a villainous CEO who, some may argue, bears a resemblance to Jeff Bezos.
