U., a “corporate anthropologist,” is tasked with writing the Great Report, an all-encompassing ethnographic document that would sum up our era. Yet at every turn, he feels himself overwhelmed by the ubiquity of data, lost in buffer zones, wandering through crowds of apparitions, willing them to coalesce into symbols that can be translated into some kind of account that makes sense. As he begins to wonder if the Great Report might remain a shapeless, oozing plasma, his senses are startled awake by a dream of an apocalyptic cityscape.

In Satin Island, Tom McCarthy captures - as only he can - the way we experience our world, our efforts to find meaning (or just to stay awake) and discern the narratives we think of as our lives.

In a rare case the actual cover for a book might not match the one in the display picture. For more information please refer to the information page Our Product.
