Satin Island 是他頁數最輕薄的作品,內容卻最怪異、詭譎又聰明,充滿敘事的實驗風格,閱讀時,需要花費一些努力,來理解作者解有層次的表達,這不是幻想或科幻小說,但卻又關閉真實世界的大門,展開另一個空間的描述。有些令人不安,曾經承諾給我們的世界,是這樣嗎?你以為你是生活在什麼世界。作者嘗試讓讀者離開習慣體驗這個世界的方式,努力尋找意義,或者只是保持清醒,來識別這座Satin Island 。

A novel for our times, from the Booker-shortlisted 'master craftsman who is steering the contemporary novel towards exciting new territories' (Observer). 
    
Meet U. -- a talented and uneasy figure currently pimping his skills to an elite consultancy in contemporary London. His employers advise everyone from big businesses to governments, and, to this end, expect their 'corporate anthropologist' to help decode and manipulate the world around them -- all the more so now that a giant, epoch-defining project is in the offing.
    
Instead, U. spends his days procrastinating, meandering through endless buffer-zones of information and becoming obsessed by the images with which the world bombards him on a daily basis: oil spills, African traffic jams, roller-blade processions, zombie parades. Is there, U. wonders, a secret logic holding all these images together -- a codex that, once cracked, will unlock the master-meaning of our age? Might it have something to do with South Pacific Cargo Cults, or the dead parachutists in the news? Perhaps; perhaps not.
     
As U. oscillates between the visionary and the vague, brilliance and bullshit, Satin Island emerges, an impassioned and exquisite novel for our disjointed times.
