Win 1 of 3 signed copies of David Cronenberg’s new book Consumed, courtesy of Penguin Canada and The Arts Guild.
In the book-filled, artfully messy Paris apartment of the famous French intellectuals Celestine and Aristide Arosteguy, an astonishing discovery is made—the grisly, butchered remains of Celestine, partially eaten. Her husband, sought by police for questioning, is nowhere to be found.Naomi Seberg, a young journalist, embarks upon a quest to uncover the truth of Celestine’s death and Aristide’s role in it. She travels to Tokyo to interview the suspected cannibal, while her boyfriend, Nathan Math, a medical journalist, seduces the cancer patient of a controversial Hungarian doctor and contracts a sexually transmitted disease. He traces the famous discoverer of the diseases to Forest Hill Village in Toronto, where he encounters the most interesting journalistic subject of all.In energetic, inventive, and provocative prose, Cronenberg creates an extraordinary, sexually charged novel of dark impulses and appetites that reminds us that the boundaries of lover and beloved aren’t nearly as defined as we believe them to be.
