A New York Magazine Best Book of the Year

In Satin Island, Tom McCarthy—the acclaimed, Man Booker Prize-nominated author of Remainder and C—captures the way we experience our world and our efforts to find meaning in the narratives we think of as our lives. U., a “corporate anthropologist,” is tasked with preparing the Great Report, an all-encompassing ethnographic document that sums up our era. Yet at every turn, he feels himself overwhelmed by the ubiquity of data. But just as U. begins to wonder if his project will ever take shape, his senses are startled awake by a dream of an apocalyptic cityscape. Unlike anything you’ve read before, Satin Island is a mind-bending adventure from one of the most original voices in literature today.
