A 2013 BEA Buzz Selection and a Barnes & Noble Discover pick, The Facades is one of the most remarkable and talked-about debut novels in recent memory.
Set in the once-great Midwestern city of Trude - a treacherous maze of convoluted shopping malls, barricaded libraries, and elitist assisted-living homes - Lundgren's novel follows a disconsolate legal clerk named Sven Norberg, who sets out to investigate his wife's disappearance. Written with boundless intelligence and razor-sharp wit, The Facades is a comic and existential mystery that unfolds at the urgent pace of a thriller. The Facades has been met with rapturous reviews upon its publication, and will be discussed for many years to come.
