  • About the Edition

    The Committee, an international cabal of industrialists and media barons, is on the verge of privatizing all information. Dear Diary, an idealistic online Underground, stands in the way of that takeover, using radical politics, classic spycraft, and technology that makes Big Data look like dial-up. Into this secret battle stumbles an unlikely trio: Leila Majnoun, a disillusioned non-profit worker; Leo Crane, an unhinged trustafarian; and Mark Deveraux, a phony self-betterment guru who works for the Committee. Leo and Mark were best friends in college, but early adulthood has set them on diverging paths. Growing increasingly disdainful of Mark"s platitudes, Leo publishes a withering takedown of his ideas online. But the Committee is reading -- and erasing -- Leo"s words. On the other side of the world, Leila"s discoveries about the Committee"s far-reaching ambitions threaten to ruin those who are closest to her.

Barker had meetings with screenwriter Robert Carlock and learned that significant changes would be made in her story to make it more Hollywood-friendly.

So we parked our van on the side of the beige road and walked up to the beige house, past dozens of skinny young soldiers brandishing Kalashnikov assault rifles and wearing mismatched khaki outfits and rope belts hiked high on their waists. That's the threat we know, and I hope we're be less likely to fall for it again.
