Satin IslandAudiobook CD - 2015
U., a "corporate anthropologist," is tasked with writing the Great Report, an all-encompassing ethnographic document that will sum up our era. Yet at every turn, he feels himself overwhelmed by the ubiquity of data, lost in buffer zones, wandering through crowds of apparitions, willing them to coalesce into symbols that can be transplanted into some kind of account that makes sense. As he begins to wonder if the Great Report might remain a shapeless, oozing plasma, his senses are startled awake by a dream of an apocalyptic cityscape.
