Dubois Jennifer

Spectators

€ 32.95

A shocking crime triggers a media firestorm for a controversial talk show host in this provocative novel—a story of redemption, a nostalgic portrait of New York City, and a searing indictment of our culture of spectacle.

Talk show host Matthew Miller has made his fame by shining a spotlight on the most unlikely and bizarre secrets of society, exposing them on television in front of millions of gawking viewers. However, the man behind The Mattie M 'show remains a mystery—both to his enormous audience and to those who work alongside him every day. But when the high school students responsible for a mass shooting are found to be devoted fans, Mattie is thrust into the glare of public scrutiny, seen as the wry, detached herald of a culture going downhill and going way too far. 'soon, the secrets of Mattie’s past as a brilliant young politician in a crime-ridden New York City begin to push their way to the surface.

In her most daring and multidimensional novel yet, Jennifer duBois vividly portrays  the heyday of gay liberation in the seventies to the grip of the Aid's crisis in the eighties, alongside a backstage view of nineties television in an age of moral panic.

DuBois explores an enigmatic man’s downfall through the perspectives of two spectators—Cel, Mattie’s skeptical publicist, and 'semi, the disillusioned lover from his past. 

With wit, heart, and crackling intelligence, The 'spectators examines the human capacity for reinvention—and forces us to ask ourselves what we choose to look at, and why.
