"A truly engaging, witty, and entertaining tale." - Readers' Favorite
Deftly satirizing the exalted startup scene, Antonio La Matina's debut novel presents a keen insight into the obsessions plaguing the millennial generation. La Matina introduces us to a style that can only be described as "dirty surrealism"-a raw, unflinching look at reality's underbelly, combined with a twist of the absurd and fantastical. In "The Marketer," readers will find themselves in a world where the everyday and the uncanny collide, creating a landscape that is as disconcerting as it is alluring.
Meet Tony - a modern everyman. All he cares about is smoking pot and watching old movies until late with his girlfriend, Marina. He is troubled not just by a series of dead-end jobs in start-ups with absurd names, neurotic bosses, and a giant cybernetic creature that haunts his dreams, but also by the strange noises coming from the apartment upstairs. And then there is Berlin - at times nightmarish and unsympathetic, at others seductive and compassionate.
