Publisher's Summary

From the Pulitzer Prize winning author! At the start of this edgy and ambitiously multilayered novel - the National Book Award Finalist - a fashion model named Charlotte Swenson emerges from a car accident in her Illinois hometown with her face so badly shattered that it takes 80 titanium screws to reassemble it. She returns to New York still beautiful but oddly unrecognizable, a virtual stranger in the world she once effortlessly occupied.
With the surreal authority of a David Lynch, Jennifer Egan threads Charlotte’s narrative with those of other casualties of our infatuation with the image. There’s a deceptively plain teenage girl embarking on a dangerous secret life, an alcoholic private eye, and an enigmatic stranger who changes names and accents as he prepares an apocalyptic blow against American society. As these narratives inexorably converge, Look at Me becomes a coolly mesmerizing intellectual thriller of identity and imposture.

Good story, horrible narrator.

I don't know if I will make it through this! Jennifer Egan is a great writer, but the narrator's delivery is ruining this listen. Every word is drenched in dramatic urgency. Nauseating.

Boring!

Couldn't even make it through. Normally I force myself to finish books, but nothing about this caught my attention. Sad I spent my Audible credit this month.
