Going, going, gone by Jack Womack( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 287 libraries worldwide
Publishers Weekly has called Jack Womack a "futurist wunderkind ... fast-moving, hipper-than-hip." In his latest novel it's 1968, and Walter Bullitt, part-time U.S. government freelancer, stays busy testing new psychotropics on himself and unsuspecting citizens. Walter's conscience never interferes with his work'until he's asked to help sabotage Bobby Kennedy's presidential campaign. The ghosts who've moved into his apartment aren't much comfort. Then two outre femmes fatales show up and frog-march Walter out of Max's Kansas City before the Velvet Underground can finish their first song. The ladies have a mission. They need to save New York'both his and theirs. Called "infernally clever" by Locus, Going, Going, Gone is a deeply entertaining novel that closes Jack Womack's acclaimed Ambient series and serves up an apt diagnosis of modern America. "Daringly, scaringly distinct in contemporary fiction."'Marjorie Preston, Philadelphia Weekly "The action moves with amphetamine quickness, and Womack's surefooted control over his material completely sucks us in ... "'Bruce Bauman, Bookforum
Elvissey by Jack Womack( Book )

At once a biting satire and a taut, fast-paced thriller, Elvissey is the story of Isabel and John, a troubled couple who voyage from the year 2033 to a strangely altered 1954. They are on a desperate mission to kidnap the young Elvis Presley and bring him back to the present day to serve as a ready-made cult leader. He proves, however, to be a reluctant messiah, and things do not work out quite as planned
Ambient by Jack Womack( Book )
19 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 241 libraries worldwide
Combining the nightmarish vision of J.G. Ballard and the linguistic brilliance of Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange, Ambient is Jack Womack's stunning first novel. Set in a decaying and violent twenty-first-century New York, Ambient tells the story of O'Malley, a very special bodyguard for an outrageously ruthless CEO named Dryden, and of his attempts to woo Dryden's personal femme fatale, Avalon. But what begins as a simple case of unrequited love quickly turns into a complicated deathtrap involving corporate intrigue, murderous family rivalries, and perverse subcultures. A stylish and brilliantly inventive novel, Ambient creates a world that is powerful, convincing, and prophetically real
