Book Thug invites you to celebrate the Toronto launch of Job Shadowing, the debut novel by Malcolm Sutton.
ABOUT JOB SHADOWING
A novel of our 20th-century desires torn asunder by the new millennium. An unemployed man, losing his ability to imagine a future self, disappears into the shadow world of an ambitious millennial. His wife, an idealistic artist at the turning point of her career, falls deeper and deeper into the gravitational field of her ultra-wealthy employer.
“A young married couple each experiences the phenomenon of union – on different continents, across gender and class – and the impossibility of reunion after their duplicitous adventures. A smooth art thriller in the tradition of Bolaño, Job Shadowing meddles with corporate culture, dying domesticity and the living, breathing life of the alienated worker. Malcolm Sutton’s work is stimulating and stand-alone.” —Tamara Faith Berger, Believer Book Award–winning author of Maidenhead
