A merciless ego trip to a parallel universe
Imagine you could be someone else – somebody who gets everything and achieves everything they dreamed of. Like Frieder Kurzmeier, for example. He is nothing, a nobody – until he creates a new identity for himself in Facebook which even in real life opens up all manner of doors.
It is as Rocco that he begins an orgiastic double life and takes revenge on everyone who has ever humiliated him. Until he goes too far…
"Facebook is the new opium of the masses. It's built to drive crazy all the weak, lonely and lost human beings. Alex Broicher has written a contemporary remake of Orwell's "1984"... In French, we call that type of novel "roman engagé". It's like the good old German "Bildungsroman" but not boring at all but, rather very amusing and useful."
Fréderic Beigbeder, Author of "39,90"
