Now in paperback, master director David Cronenberg's shocking, irresistibly inventive novel about love and the unthinkable limits of desire.

In the book-filled, artfully messy Paris apartment of the famous French intellectuals Célestine and Aristide Arosteguy, an astonishing discovery is made. The grisly, butchered remains of Célestine are found--partially eaten--and her husband, sought by the police for questioning, has disappeared. Naomi Seberg, a young journalist, embarks upon a quest to uncover the truth of Célestine's death and Aristide's role in it, travelling to Tokyo to interview the suspected cannibal, while her boyfriend, Nathan Math, a medical journalist, seduces the cancer patient of a controversial Hungarian doctor, contracts a sexually transmitted disease, and traces the disease's famous discoverer 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.

David Cronenberg is frequently lauded as one of the world's greatest and most influential directors and has created works of cinematic art that have consistently earned him international critical accolades. His uniquely personal and deeply riveting body of work includes such films as Shivers, Videodrome, The Fly, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, Crash, A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, A Dangerous Method, Cosmopolis, and Maps to the Stars.  In 1999 Cronenberg presided over the jury at the Cannes Film Festival, and he received the festival's lifetime achievement award, the Carrosse d'Or, in 2006. Recognition of his contribution to global art and culture has included an appointment as an Officer to the Order of Canada in 2003, investiture in France's Order of Arts and Letters in 1990, and the Légion d'honneur in 2009. He was made a Fellow of the British Film Institute in 2011.
