From the Pulitzer Prize winning author! At the start of this edgy and ambitiously multilayered novel - the National Book Award Finalist - a fashion model named Charlotte Swenson emerges from a car accident in her Illinois hometown with her face so badly shattered that it takes 80 titanium screws to reassemble it. She returns to New York still beautiful but oddly unrecognizable, a virtual stranger in the world she once effortlessly occupied.

With the surreal authority of a David Lynch, Jennifer Egan threads Charlotte's narrative with those of other casualties of our infatuation with the image. There's a deceptively plain teenage girl embarking on a dangerous secret life, an alcoholic private eye, and an enigmatic stranger who changes names and accents as he prepares an apocalyptic blow against American society. As these narratives inexorably converge, Look at Me becomes a coolly mesmerizing intellectual thriller of identity and imposture.

    " I really liked the way this book started out. I connected to the characters, and the premise of a model who was now nearly unrecognizable because of an accident intrigued me. However, the last few chapters confused me. They just didn't seem to fit with the rest of the book. "

    " I almost put the book down, but just when I was going to give up (after 200 pages), it got interesting. "

    " I can't believe how long ago I read this book. Time passes quickly. But I enjoyed every minute of it over a winter vacation. "

    " I liked this book a lot. Although if someone described it to me I might not necessarily have expected to. Thumbs up. "
