Face

Margaret Atwood meets Kazuo Ishiguro in this story about designer babies, social media fame, and race.

How much is your Face worth?

Atwood meets Ishiguro in this domestic drama that reimagines race and class in a genetically engineered society fed by performative fame.

Schuyler and Madeleine Burroughs have the perfect Face—rich and powerful enough to assure their dominance in society.

But in SchAddie’s household, cracks are beginning to appear. Schuyler is bored and taking risks. Maddie is becoming brittle, her happiness ever more fleeting. And their menial is fighting the most bizarre compulsions.

In Face, skin color is an aesthetic choice designed by professionals, consent is a pre-checked box on the path to social acceptance, and your online profile isn’t just the most important thing—it’s the only thing.
