The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson (1995)
This is a satisfying construct of a book within a novel. Much of the action takes place in the near future perhaps 100 years after Readme and Snowcrash. It is a post nation-state world where nanotechnology is maturing. The main character is a girl who is given a "magic " book that prepares her for an unlikely future.
I must say that this book reinforces my admiration for the author.
"I wonder what became of all the Rockers and the Mods.
I hope they are making it and they've all got stead jobs,
Oh but rock and roll still lives on,
Yeah, rock and roll still lives on. "
