520    The fiction debut from the LA Times bestselling author of 
       What We See When We Read-- a novel of ideas set in a 
       mysterious institute in the desert. In the shifting desert
       sands on the outskirts of a Middle Eastern city sits a 
       mysterious Institute, where Fellows in every field of 
       knowledge and endeavor under the (inhospitably hot) sun 
       work on Projects and give Discourses(TM) and dedicate 
       themselves to copying, cloning, replicating, and 
       reproducing a world to which none of them seem to have any
       intention of returning. Same Same is Percy Frobisher's 
       account of his tenure as a Fellow at the Institute, and 
       his attempt to realize--or is it simulate?--his own 
       audacious Project. Imagining a world in which simulacra 
       have as much value as the real--so much so that any 
       distinction between the two vanishes, and even language 
       seeks to reproduce meaning through ever more degraded 
       copies of itself--Peter Mendelsund has crafted a deeply 
       unsettling novel about what it means to exist, and to 
       create . . . and a future that may not be far off.
