Overview

David Fuffman has always wanted to be a superhero, but as freshman year begins at Princeton, he’d settle for simply being noticed. Off campus, things aren’t much better: America is in a perpetual state of war, natural disasters are ravaging the Eastern seaboard, and many scientists now believe that time itself is collapsing.

With nothing to lose, David organizes an unsanctioned Halloween party with elaborate costumes and paintball guns. The event quickly spirals out of control, and a sexual assault upends life on campus. David and his crush, Haley Roth, are both left reeling, doubting everything; and as a super storm takes hold David seeks guidance from a charismatic classmate, Mathias Blue. Mathias invites David to join him at The Egg―an off-campus geodesic dome where, driven by the unrest of the world, a revolution is beginning to take hold: students are dropping out of college and taking matters into their own hands.
?
Fueled by drugs, anarchy and Mathias’s notions on evolution, David and Haley become immersed in the social ecosystem at The Egg. As apocalyptic phenomena threaten civilization’s future, the movement they started expands across college campuses nationwide, inspiring a cult-like following, with dangerous consequences.

Adam Nemett offers a sprawling ambitious debut, tackles contemporary life in all of its chaos and unknowing, and offering a multi-layered examination of what may be the fundamental question of our time: just who is responsible for fixing all of this?
