Doppelganger is her most personal book yet. Published on 12th September by Allen Lane, Klein begins this intellectual adventure story by grappling with her own doppelganger— a fellow author and public intellectual whose views are antithetical to Klein’s own, but whose name and public persona are sufficiently similar that many people have confused the two over the years.
Doppelganger takes on the challenges of this new AI age, and is for anyone who has lost hours down an internet rabbit hole. Join us on this journey into the alternate.
