The Paper Eater - Liz Jensen

This gloriously angry book rages at modern day consumerism and asks what a society ruled by a corporation might look like. At the centre of the tale are two misfits. Harvey Kidd is the paper eater of the title, an orphan who created his own family from his fractured mind after a trauma, and Hannah Park with a complex and rare social disorder. Both are fascinating characters in the midst of a conspiracy that threatens both their lives. Excellent read.
