Love Addict: Confessions of a Serial Dater
Koren Shadmi (w & a & c)
LONELY? THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT. Reeling after a breakup, young animator “K”
is pushed by a friend to join the popular dating site Lovebug. His journey begins as a search for true love, but soon awakens a relentless craving for novelty and sexual conquest.
With the touch of a button, K embarks on a dating spree, browsing a digital marketplace of the flesh. Who can stop when Lovebug offers an endless stream of prospective mates, sorted by algorithms and stored on a distant server, ready on demand like TV episodes or Chinese takeout? And in the face of this addiction, can K hold on to his friends, his job, or even his humanity?
The acclaimed author of In the Flesh and The Abaddon presents an evocative tale of modern love… in a world where even full bars can lead to a bad connection.
