    At the start of this edgy and ambitiously multilayered novel, a fashion model named Charlotte Swenson emerges from a car accident in her Illinois hometown with her face so badly shattered that it takes eighty titanium screws to reassemble it. She returns to New York still beautiful but oddly unrecognizable, a virtual stranger in the world she once effortlessly occupied. With surreal ingenuity - like that of David Lynch - author Jennifer Egan interweaves Charlotte's story with those of other casualties of our infatuation with image. As these narratives inexorably converge, the novel becomes a coolly mesmerizing intellectual thriller of identity and imposture. A National Book Award Finalist. 415p.

    • Published: July 2007
    This brilliantly conjured novel presents a world from which escape is impossible and where the keep - the tower, the last stand - is both everything worth protecting and the very thing that must be surrendered in order to survive. In an environment of extreme paranoia, two cousins, irreversibly damaged by a childhood prank, reunite twenty years later to renovate a medieval castle in Eastern Europe. Cut off from the outside world, they reenact the signal event of their youth, with even more catastrophic results. This visionary, at once hyperrealistic and darkly dreamed novel reads like a 21st-century mash-up of Kafka, Calvino and Poe, in which the absurd meets the surreal meets the unspeakable. 255p.
