Overview

Parachute: A Sadly Funny Novel about the Consumption of Consumers by Sinclair Dumontais

A world-renowned consultant is lured out of self-imposed exile on a remote Greek island to expound on an ultimate marketing strategy to the members of the board of a multinational footwear corporation. As venal and disturbing as the strategy is, this 21st century "Prince" styles himself as an architect of neo-liberalism in its most shark-like incarnation. The only values he recognizes are those linked intimately to the profit principle. Cunning, pretentious, and deeply irreverent, he has created a marketing scheme that reduces human beings to pure consumer animals.

Corrosively satirical, The Parachute reveals an extreme society obsessed by mass consumption and instant gratification.
