Sam Lipsyte A hilarious and dazzling debut novel about a master impressionist at risk of losing his true selfAll his life, Giovanni Bernini has possessed an uncanny gift: he can imitate anyone he meets. Honed by his mother at a young age, the talent catapults him from small-town obscurity to stardom. As Giovanni describes it, No one s disguise is perfect. There is in every person, no matter how graceful, a seam, a thread curling out of them. . . . When pulled by the right hands, it will unravel the person entire. As his fame grows, Giovanni encounters a beautiful and enigmatic stage singer, Lucy Starlight the only person whose thread he cannot find and becomes increasingly trapped inside his many poses. Ultimately, he must assume the one identity he has never been able to master: his own. In the vein of Jonathan Lethem s and Kevin Wilson s playful surrealism, Jacob Rubin s "The Poser" is the debut of a major literary voice, a masterfully written, deeply original comic novel, and the moving story of a man who must risk everything for the chance to save his life and know true love.
