filmmaker David Cronenberg’s first novel tells the story of two journalists fascinated by scandal and social media whose entanglement in a French philosopher’s death becomes a surreal journey into global conspiracy. The image created for the cover is a face under deconstruction. Its expression alludes to ambiguous feelings of pleasure and despair. the noise on the image looks like glitches, as if computer viruses were consuming the human figure.
