A brilliantly clever, truly mind-bending satire about truth, lies, and the dark underbelly of 21st century celebrity life.
 
This book is different. You've really never read a book like this before. It's the story of an April night that never happened. A night that changes everything for nerdy Michael, a Fleet Street worker ant, when he agrees to take his boss's invitation to an A-list party at a London club.
 
Inside, reclusive movie star Hugo Marks is announcing his re-entrance to society. And the last thing Hugo needs is Mellody, his junkie supermodel wife, deciding now's the time to swan-dive off the wagon. Or drop-dead-gorgeous pop pup Calvin, hoping he can screw himself into their league.
 
Yet not one of them sees the real crisis coming. The moment that will tangle their four lives into an intricate disaster. It happens at the afterparty. But then, perhaps you knew that already.

About the Author:

Review:

"A topsy-turvy postmodern tour de force."
—Olivia Laing, New Statesman
 
"It's uncommonly well written, with a bountiful supply of manic energy... Would Paul Auster kill to write abook as playful, fast-paced and unashamedly populist as this? Doubtful, but somewhere there's a "Paul Auster" who might."
—Alastair Mabbott, Herald
