Now a major film by David Cronenberg, starring Robert Pattinson.
Eric Packer is a twenty-eight-year-old multi-billionaire asset manager. He lives in Manhattan. We join him on what will become a particularly eventful day in his life. When he woke up, he didn't know what he wanted. Then he knew. He wanted to get a haircut. As his stretch limousine moves across town, his world begins to fall apart. But more worrying than the loss of his fortune is the realization that his life may be under threat. 'A brilliant excursion into the decadence of contemporary culture' Sunday Times 'One of America's smartest and most disturbing writers' The Times
