Descripción

An intelligent and madly entertaining debut novel reminiscent of The Crying of Lot 49, White Noise, and City of Glass that is at once a missing-person mystery, an exorcism of modern culture, and a wholly singular vision of contemporary womanhood from a terrifying and often funny voice of a new generation.A woman known only by the letter A lives in an unnamed American city with her roommate, B, and boyfriend, C, who wants her to join him on a reality show called Thats My Partner! A eats (or doesnt) the right things, watches endless amounts of television, often just for the commercialsparticularly the recurring cartoon escapades of Kandy Kat, the mascot for an entirely chemical dessertand models herself on a standard of beauty that only exists in such advertising. She fixates on the fifteen minutes of fame a news-celebrity named Michael has earned after buying up his local Wally Supermarkets entire, and increasingly ample, supply of veal.Meanwhile B is attempting to make herself a twin of A, who hungers for something to give meaning to her life, something aside from Cs pornography addiction, and becomes indoctrinated by a new religion spread throughout a web of corporate franchises, which moves her closer to the decoys that populate her television world, but no closer to her true nature.
