The Narcissist is a gripping, inventive and witty take on personal and political communication in the internet age.
Everyone needs Jim.
His mother. His best friend. His brother. His new lover. A hopeful future President.
But can Jim really help anyone, when he isn’t sure who he is any more, or what he actually believes? An expert in electoral strategy, he’s forged a successful career by advising politicians how to communicate with voters. But following seismic shifts in the political landscape, he’s disillusioned. And his marriage is in crisis. As he juggles the demands on his life through his smartphone, will the lure of success and fame prove irresistible?
