The debut novel by the iconic film director. Stylish and camera-obsessed, Naomi and Nathan are lovers and competitors - nomadic freelancers in pursuit of sensation and depravity in the social media age, encountering each other only in airport hotels and browser windows. Naomi finds herself drawn to the headlines surrounding Celestine and Aristide Arosteguy, Marxist philosophers and sexual libertines. Celestine has been found dead and mutilated in her Paris apartment. Aristide, suspected of the killing, has disappeared. Naomi sets off in pursuit, but the secrets she discovers are as seductive as they are disturbing. Nathan, meanwhile, is in Budapest photographing the controversial work of an unlicensed surgeon named Zoltan Molnar. After sleeping with one of Molnar's patients, Nathan contracts a rare STD called Roiphe's. Nathan then travels to Toronto, determined to meet the man who identified the syndrome. Dr. Barry Roiphe, Nathan learns, now studies his own adult daughter, whose bizarre behaviour masks a devastating secret. These parallel narratives become entwined in a gripping, dreamlike plot that involves geopolitics, 3-D printing, North Korea, the Cannes Film Festival, cancer, and, in an incredible number of varieties, sex. 'Consumed' is an exhilarating, provocative debut novel from one of the world's leading film directors.

Mistuiti

Author: David Cronenberg Format: eBook Release Date: 09/11/2015

Mistuiti, fulminantul debut literar al lui David Cronenberg, ii aduce in prim-plan pe Nathan si Naomi, un cuplu modern de jurnalisti, a caror viata este atat de haotica, incat se intalnesc doar in hoteluri, cand drumurile li se intersecteaza. Ea scrie despre crime, el - despre interventii medicale speciale. Viata de cuplu le este mediata de internet, smartphone-uri, laptopuri si camere video. Cei doi au, de asemenea, in comun gustul pentru aventuri sexuale, in special cu subiectii articolelor la care lucreaza. In timp ce Naomi intervieveaza un celebru filosof francez suspectat ca si-ar fi ucis sotia si ar fi mancat parti din trupul ei, Nathan face un reportaj despre un tratament medical obscur pentru cancerul de san, aplicat unei paciente superbe intr-o clinica din Budapesta. Acolo descopera ingrozit ca a contractat o boala venerica numita boala lui Roiphe si gandul ca trebuie sa-i explice totul lui Naomi il terorizeaza. Cautand un tratament, in minte i se iveste neincetat intrebarea Ce s-o fi intamplat cu Roiphe?"e;, care deschide, aidoma unei chei, poarta spre o lume halucinanta, impregnata de erotism, in care virtualul pare sa submineze constant realitatea, o lume extrem de plastica, amintind de filmele regizorului Cronenberg.
