Book Giveaway: “Familiar Face” by Michael DeForge

Toronto-based artist Michael DeForge’s new book Familiar Face offers a vibrant critique of the absurd bureaucracy of everyday life. Questioning where true connection can be found in a modern society that is constantly in flux, the story is set in a surreal dystopia where citizens and infrastructures undergo incessant system updates. These changes can alter a commuter’s route from one day to the next or even affect how a person looks. The narrator of Familiar Face works for the government’s department of complaints. Of course, this job isn’t about fixing bugs in the system; it’s about being the human sounding board for every possible complaint, no matter how petty or existential.
