Fake accounts [eBook]

Oyler, Lauren2021
A wry, provocative and very funny debut novel about identity, authenticity and the self in the age of the internetA Bookseller Editor?s ChoiceOn the eve of Donald Trump?s inauguration, a young woman snoops through her boyfriend?s phone and makes a startling discovery: he?s an anonymous Internet conspiracy theorist, and a popular one at that. Already fluent in Internet fakery, irony, and outrage, she?s not exactly shocked by the revelation. But this is only the first in a series of bizarre twists that expose a world whose truths are shaped by online lies.Suddenly left with no reason to stay in New York - or be anywhere in particular - she flees to Berlin, and embarks on her own cycles of manipulation in the deceptive spaces of her daily life, from dating apps to expat social events, open-plan offices to bureaucratic waiting rooms.Narrated in a voice as seductive as it is subtly subversive, Fake Accounts is a wry, provocative and very funny debut novel about identity and authenticity in the age of the internet.
