Read full description of the books Death on Facebook, Short Stories for the Digital Age:

This is a collection of short stories for the digital age, complete with references to social media (facebook) and technological gadgets from e-readers to smart phones. All nine stories are recent and firmly anchored in our fast-changing, globalized world. For each story, Claude Nougat gives a quick hint of what inspired her:
Death on Facebook: culture clashes or how an innocent picture posted on the world’s largest social network can have deadly consequences. (Story set in India)
The Great Hacker Heist: when virtual reality overtakes the physical world or how video games can unexpectedly disrupt normal lives. (Setting: USA)
Wickedness on Wikipedia: when an excess of information comforts prejudice and leads to irrational behavior and tragedy.(Setting: France)
I Will Not Leave You Behind: when our fixation on staying young is taken to its extreme logical conclusion. (Setting: USA in the future)
Diary of a 98 year-old Lady: recounted from the point of view of a senior citizen, it records the frustrations of becoming dependent on others, especially in the digital age. (Setting: Italy, Rome)
The Prince and the Art Dealer: the excesses of Contemporary Art or a tale of gullibility.(Setting: An Arab Gulf State)
Kill Mamma: when parents’ unrealistic expectations for their children become like the walls of a prison and the only escape is murder. (Setting: Italy, Parma)
The Ice Maker: unexpected and tragic fallouts of a war when the occupying power belongs to another civilization. (Setting: Iraq)
Good-bye Melinda: studying abroad can have unwanted, lethal results. (Setting: Italy, Florence)
The book is short: about 22,000 words.

Ebook Death on Facebook, Short Stories for the Digital Age read Online! Real name: Claude Forthomme. A Columbia University graduate (economics), I followed in Jack London’s footsteps, dabbling at a variety of jobs from banking to publishing, journalism, marketing and teaching before joining the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, FAO, in Rome. I worked there 25 years, first as a project evaluation officer traveling to developing countries and ending my career as Regional Representative for Europe and Central Asia.

Now I spend my time on my two lifelong passions, writing and painting. So far I have published two books in Italian and eight books in English, all fiction except one essay on development aid.

Latest book out: GATEWAY TO FOREVER, a thriller set 200 years from now, when life on Earth is threatened with extinction in spite of technological advances.

I am married and live in Italy.
