Product description


Brave, brilliant and barely speculative... Part cartoon and part allegory, it's tempting to call NK3 the first book of the Trump era. -- Chris Kraus, author of I LOVE DICK NK3 is either the last great Hollywood novel or the first great book of Burning Man... a strangely terrifying if celebratory novel of remnants, fragments, the nag of one's inner voice, and dim reminders of the dissolve that has become America. -- A. M. Homes * Vanity Fair * NK3 is nightmare and satire, thriller and warning. Crafted by a master storyteller, it is a haunting parable about civilization marching forward, while forgetting what it leaves behind. * Los Angeles Review of Books * [An] ingenious dystopian thriller... clever entertainment * Washington Post * Darkly satirical... At a time of alternative facts and a bend toward cultural amnesia, NK3 feels especially prescient. * San Francisco Chronicle * An intricate and cleverly constructed account of the aftermath of a North Korean chemical attack * New Yorker * Tolkin's mad world of imbeciles and cast-offs bears a cruel resemblance to our own, yet he approaches it kindly, with mournful pity. An inspired speculative satire, wickedly stimulating but soulful, too. It got to me, this novel. I just can't shake it. -- Walter Kirn As an existentialist horror story, NK3 tautly proposes a future that now, in post-factual America, seems closer than ever. -- Jon Robin Baitz Michael Tolkin is an L.A. Antonioni with a sense of humour. * New Yorker * One of the most wounding and satirical of all Hollywood exposes: dark and mordant . . . A nightmare rendered with icy precision. * L.A. Times on THE PLAYER * Tolkin remains impressive as a scorched-earth social satirist. * New York Times on RETURN OF THE PLAYER *

Book Description
