Some brief overview of book

A WALL STREET JOURNAL AND VOGUE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF 2020 "A triumph of tone and intelligence. Percy Q's perspective is skewed and searching at once, and through her eyes, we see afresh not only New York's post-911 landscape but also the world of art, and love, and the process of becoming." Rivka Galchen, author of Atmospheric Disturbances Percy is pregnant. She hasnt told a soul.

Probably she should tell her husbandcertainly she means tobut one night she wakes up to find she no longer recognizes him. Now, instead of sleeping, Percy is spending her nights taking walks through her neighborhood, all the while fretting over her marriage, her impending motherhood, and the sinister ways the city is changing. Amid this alienationfrom her husband, home, and rapidly changing bodya package arrives.

In it an exhibition catalog for a photography show. The photographs consist of a series of digitally manipulated images of a woman lying on a bed in a red room. It takes a moment for even Percy to notice that the woman is herself .

. . but no one else sees the resemblance. Percy must now come to grips with the fundamental question of identity in the digital age To what extent do we own our own image, and to what extent is that image shaped by the eyes of others?

Capturing perfectly the haunted atmosphere of Manhattan immediately after 911and the simmering insanity of America ever sinceJessi Jezewska Stevens's The Exhibition of Persephone Q is a darkly witty satire about how easy it is to lose ownership of our own selves.
