A scientist is lured into a dark conspiracy in "the most frightening book since 1984," by the New York Times-bestselling author of Man in the Woods (Library Journal). Paul Galambos is an ordinary professor of psychology, struggling to glean any degree of satisfaction or success from his family and his career--until one day he is recruited by a top-secret organization and given carte blanche to pursue experiments and studies as he sees fit, no longer confined to lab rats. This is the life that Paul was destined for, replete with money and respect, if only he can ignore the incessant pull of his conscience. Alternately funny and chilling, Last Night at the Brain Thieves Ball delves into the ethical issues surrounding science and the perils of ambition, and exposes the narcissistic tendencies of humankind. From a National Book Award finalist known for such novels as Endless Love and A Ship Made of Paper, this is a thoughtful, suspenseful tale of "a mad scientist's dream hovering tantalizingly close to reality" (The New York Times).   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Scott Spencer, including rare photos from the author's personal collection.… (més)

This novel appears to be about the amount of mental manipulation is required to turn a human being into an american business man. A psychologist takes a job at a marketing think tank, and gradually explores some of its levels of madness. It came be seen, though written as a piece of surrealism in 1975, as a good parable for life as it is now lived in 2015. You may enjoy the read, or view it as just another dystopia. ( )
