Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


A cautionary tale for a world in which social media has shattered the boundaries of intimacy.

The first time that M lanie met Clara, she was stunned by Clara's sense of authority, and for her part, Clara was struck by M lanie's pink, glittery nails, which shimmered in the dark. "She looks like a child," thought the first. "She looks like a doll," pondered the second.

These two women, both of the same generation and exposed to the same forms of media throughout their lives, could not be more different in adulthood. M lanie is a social media superstar, broadcasting her children's daily lives on a family YouTube channel. Clara is a young police officer, assigned to the case after M lanie's daughter Kimmy is abducted.

Traversing the Big Brother generation, the social media influencer generation, and right up to the 2030s, Delphine de Vigan offers a bone-chilling expos of a world where everything is broadcasted and monetized, even family happiness.
