Mozart in Mirrorshades

I have to say that I agree with [Chris's post] regarding contemporary cyberpunk scifi. I do like Neal Stephenson a lot, and of course William Gibson (though the whole Virtual Light series didn't sit right with me). Bruce Sterling, I could only make it all the way through one of his books. His nonfiction stuff is good, and I have the utmost respect for him, but for some reason I just can't make it all the way through his books. Johnathan Lethem could probably be called cyberpunk, and he's really my favorite author. His style of writing is just very rich with subtlties and nuance, and his use of language is very expressive. Great stuff.
