    When it comes to his own writing, the?founder of independent publishing house?McSweeney’s tends to draw on important?contemporary social issues. The Circle is a?good example, taking its inspiration from?the phenomenon that is social media. The?question that Eggers asks here isn’t new, but?it is undoubtedly important: are our lives being?orchestrated and endangered by companies?including Facebook and Google? The novel is?about young and enthusiastic graduate Mae?Holland, who is hired to work for the world’s?most powerful internet company, The Circle.?A progressive and innovative workplace, it?inspires in its workforce a cultish loyalty that?Mae fully embraces. But is there a sinister?side to The Circle that its billions of followers?can’t see? Clearly inspired by Orwell’s 1984,?Eggers’ fast-paced thriller leaves us in no?doubt of the answer.
