Ad description

Consumed centers on two couples: Naomi and Nathan, stylish globetrotting journalist-photographers who thrive on a sort of intellectual yellow journalism in the social-media age; and C?lestine and Aristide Arosteguy, Marxist French philosophers and sexual libertines. As the novel opens, Celestine has been found dead and mutilated in her Paris apartment. Aristide has disappeared, and police suspect him of killing her–and, in a grotesque twist, consuming parts of her body. Following the story in the news, Naomi becomes obsessed with the sordid tale. She travels to Paris and, using a chain of associates, tries to track Aristide down. As she delves deeper into C?lestine and Aristide’s lives, disturbing details emerge about their almost predatory sexual behavior with their circle of students and acquaintances. When Naomi gets a lead that Aristide has fled to Tokyo, she becomes determined to track him down, no matter the cost.Nathan, meanwhile, has been photographing the controversial work of an unlicensed surgeon in Budapest. After sleeping with one of the doctor’s patients, Nathan contracts a rare STD called Roiphe’s syndrome. He travels to Toronto to meet the now-obscure doctor who discovered Roiphe’s. The seemingly mild-mannered doctor, Nathan learns, is studying his own adult daughter, who is exhibiting bizarre psychosomatic behavior–and harbors devastating secrets.These disparate narratives become entwined in surprising, strange ways, in a richly layered story that involves a host of tantalizing subjects: 3-D printing, Marxism, North Korea, the Cannes Film Festival, Budapest, photography, journalism, social networking, cancer, Oliver Sacks, cannibalism, and, in an incredible number of varieties, sex—just to name a few. Consumed is an exuberant, provocative debut novel from one of the world’s leading film directors.
