I'd say Ta-Nehisi Coates' "Between the World and Me" is the most ambitious book of this decade. It's not really a novel, but you take what you can get.

Re-watching it, I think it's saying that icons project a personality that gangs of followers take on.

It's ironic, though, because it's a rock star performing this but I think the idea itself is well done.
