Nick Drnaso – SABRINA
“A profoundly American nightmare… The fictional killing in Sabrina is disturbing, but Drnaso doesnt fixate on the gore or the culprit; hes more concerned with how the public claims and consumes it, spinning out morbid fantasies with impunity… Its a shattering work of art.”Ed Park, New York Times
Conspiracy theories, breakdown, murder: Everythings gonna be all rightuntil it isnt
When Sabrina disappears, an airman in the U.S. Air Force is drawn into a web of suppositions, wild theories, and outright lies. He reports to work every night in a bare, sterile fortress that serves as no protection from a situation that threatens the sanity of Teddy, his childhood friend and the boyfriend of the missing woman. Sabrinas grieving sister, Sandra, struggles to fill her days as she waits in purgatory. After a videotape surfaces, we see devastation through a cinematic lens, as true tragedy is distorted when fringe thinkers and conspiracy theorists begin to interpret events to fit their own narratives.
The follow-up to Nick Drnasos Beverly, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, Sabrina depicts a modern world devoid of personal interaction and responsibility, where relationships are stripped of intimacy through glowing computer screens. Presenting an indictment of our modern state, Drnaso contemplates the dangers of a fake-news climate. Timely and articulate, Sabrina leaves you gutted, searching for meaning in the aftermath of disaster.
