Descrizione

The debut novel by the iconic film director. Stylish and tech-obsessed, Naomi and Nathan thrive on the yellow journalism of the social-media age. They are lovers and competitors - nomadic freelancers in pursuit of sensation and depravity, encountering each other only in airport hotels and browser windows. Naomi finds herself drawn to the headlines surrounding Celestine and Aristide Arosteguy, Marxist philosophers and sexual libertines. Celestine has been found dead and mutilated in her Paris apartment. Naomi sets off on the trail of Aristide, who has fled the country. But the truth behind the murder is disturbing and deadly. Nathan, meanwhile, has contracted a rare STD called Roiphe's. He travels to Toronto, determined to meet the man who discovered the syndrome. Dr. Barry Roiphe, now studies his own adult daughter, whose bizarre behaviour masks a devastating secret. These parallel narratives become entwined in a gripping, dreamlike plot that involves geopolitics, 3-D printing, North Korea, the Cannes Film Festival, cancer, and, in an incredible number of varieties, sex. 'Consumed' is an exuberant, provocative debut novel from one of the world's leading film directors.
