Alissa Nutting, assistant professor of English and writer-in-residence, published Made for Love (Ecco/HarperCollins, July 2017) to rave reviews. The novel tells the story of Hazel, who has just run out on her marriage to Byron Gogol, CEO and founder of Gogol Industries, a monolithic corporation hellbent on making its products and technologies indispensable in daily life. For more than a decade, Hazel put up with being veritably quarantined by Byron in the family compound, her every movement and vital sign tracked. But when he demands to wirelessly connect the two of them via brain chips in a first-ever human “mind-meld,” Hazel decides what was once merely irritating has become unbearable. As she tries to carve out a new life for herself in this uncharted territory, Byron is using the most sophisticated tools at his disposal to find her and bring her home.
