SympathyBook - 2017
"At twenty-three, Alice Hare leaves England for New York. She becomes fixated on Mizuko Himura, a Japanese writer living in New York, whose life story has strange parallels to her own and who she believes is her "Internet twin." What seems to Mizuko like a chance encounter with Alice is anything but--after all, in the age of connectivity, nothing is coincidence.Their subsequent relationship is doomed from the outset, exposing a tangle of lies and sexual encounters as three families across the globe collide, and the most ancient of questions--where do we come from?--is answered just by searching online."-- Provided by publisher.
