Book DescriptionAn addictive literary puzzle that introduces an unforgettable young heroine plunged into the twisted world of a secret society with a dark agenda. Lee Cuddy is seventeen years old and on the run, alone on the streets of Philadelphia. A fugitive with no money, no home and nowhere to go, Lee finds refuge in a deserted building known as the Crystal Castle. But the Castle conceals a sinister agenda, one masterminded by a society of fanatical men set on decoding a series of powerful secrets hidden in plain sight. And they believe Lee holds the key to it all. Aided by Tomi, a mysterious young hacker, Lee escapes into the unmapped corners of the city. But the deeper she goes underground, the more tightly she finds herself bound in the strange web of the men she's trying to elude. Aware that the lives of those she cares for are in increasing danger, it is only when Lee steps from the shadows to confront who is chasing her that she discovers what they're really after, and why. Part literary detective novel, part art history, part conspiracy thriller, The Readymade Thief introduces a singular, indomitable heroine and the arrival of a spellbinding and original new talent in fiction.
Editorial ReviewThe Readymade Thief is smart and strange, full of lovely Duchampian tricks and treats. Augustus Rose has infused his thriller with the true Dada spirit, nothing is quite what it seems. I loved it. -- Audrey Niffenegger In his highly addictive and multifaceted first novel, Augustus Rose pits an irrepressible and gritty young heroine against a sinister group of fanatics. The Readymade Thief is a kickass debut from start to finish." -- Colson Whitehead, author of 'The Underground Railroad' "The Readymade Thief is my favorite kind of book: an improbable one ... A novel that's unexpected, uncategorizable, unputdownable." -- Robin Sloan, author of 'Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore' "A rewarding novel full of pleasures and surprises. Every time I thought I knew where the story was going, it took me somewhere stranger and deeper than I could have imagined. A rich, heady mix of ideas and thrills." -- Charles Yu, author of 'How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe' "Augustus Rose shows that he has one of the steadiest hands in fiction ... Rose has crafted something memorable, crackling with energy, a truly wonderful tale." -- Kevin Wilson, author of 'The Family Fang'
