Description

An ingenious novel about art and revenge, insisting on your dreams and hitting on your doctor, told in the form of 81 movie reviews.

In near-future America, film critic Noah Body uploads his reviews to an underread ‘Content Aggregator.’ His job is dreary routine: watch, seethe, pan.

He dreams of making his own film, free of the hackery of commercial cinema. Faced with writing on lousy movies for a website that no one reads, Noah smuggles into his reviews depictions of his troubled and marginal life.

Set in a wildly imaginative and uncannily familiar world of nanny states and extreme rationing, Safe Zones and New Koreas.
