Playground for Misunderstanding

Playground_cover2

Playground for Misunderstanding takes a smart and funny walk along communication faultlines — male-female, young-old, French-American — while uncovering a police investigation in Paris, France.

An American exchange student and his French girlfriend trip into an uncertain murder investigation and land in the heart of contemporary Parisian reality:  flashmobs in the Luxembourg Gardens, anti-immigrant rallies by the mosque, arson-by-developer for prime real estate, and an international Nietzsche hacker stealing electronic ad space to try to get people to think, instead of consume. As the investigation unfolds, Playground for Misunderstanding looks beneath the surface at long-simmering questions, not least of which is the role of the past in the present. Paralysis, or preservation?
