Paul O'Rourke is a Manhattan dentist with a thriving practice leading a quiet, routine-driven life. Then one day someone begins to impersonate Paul online, and he watches in horror as a website, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account are created in his name. His biggest fear is that the online 'Paul' might be a better version of the real thing. As Paul's quest to learn why his identity has been stolen deepens, he is forced to confront his troubled past and his uncertain future.

Campbell Scott's dry, pleasant, and piercingly sarcastic voice is spot-on for this novel. I highly recommend the audio version. I listened to it on my phone and I hardly paused until I had finished it.

We follow Paul O'Rourke, a dentist plagued with self-doubt and the contradictions of modern life as he discovers someone has stolen his online identity and made him a website, etc. He wonders if this social media savvy, fake version of himself isn't somehow doing better than he is in reality.

This book has sharply written dialogue and interactions, observations at once painful and hysterically funny, and a totally relatable struggle against the meaningless dredge of modern life.
