Morgan Miller of Antigone Books recommends 'Uncanny Valley'

The Show's recurring segment, Page Turner, brings you one new book at a time — one that a local expert or critic is excited about. Today’s pick takes us on a look inside the world of tech startups.

The book, " Uncanny Valley" is expected to be released early next year, but Morgan Miller got an early read. 

"So this is a memoir by Anna Wiener," Miller said. "She is a young woman who basically had a degree in English and was working in the publishing industry and kind of finding that she was having trouble affording living in New York City while working in that industry, having trouble seeing a future in that industry.

Miller is a co-owner of Antigone Books in Tucson, and was a little surprised she liked Anna Wiener’s debut book as much as she did.

"So then she got involved with an e-book startup in New York and found herself in the world of the tech industry," she said. "Eventually she moved to Silicon Valley and started working for a big data startup. And this memoir is her story about what it was like being in the tech industry and sort of her observations and experiences."
