It was a mistake to go into Daunt Books on Cheapside yesterday when I had 20 minutes spare before lunch. In a lucky escape, I got out with only three paperbacks: Altai by Wu Ming, The Golden Egg by Donna Leon, and Geek Sublime: Writing Fiction, Coding Software by Vikram Chandra. The blurb asks: Can code ever be called beautiful? It promises the book looks at the links between logic gates and modernism, geeks and machismo, and Indians and coding. Irresistible.
