Tom McCarthy: Satin Island

Hosted by

Tom McCarthy's Satin Island (Vintage Contemporaries) features a protagonist who, as his company's corporate anthropologist, has been given the enormous task of compiling a report summing up the modern era. The book is the perfect vehicle for McCarthy to dive into his fascination with bureaucracy and the avant-garde – reflected in the committees and subcommittees that consume his main character's life.
