by Sarah Schulman - £13.99 Arsenal Pulp Press (2011)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781551524245 | ISBN 10: 1551524244
Sarah Schulman's acclaimed dystopian satire about urban mores is set in New York sometime in the future, when the city has morphed into an idealized version of itself: rent is cheap, homelessness is nonexistent, and the only job left is in marketing. But all is not as it seems, when a murder is committed by a prominent New Yorker and the resulting trial transfixes the city.
Sparkling with witty and provocative social commentary, The Mere Future is a startingly sharp-eyed prophecy of the world to come. Kessler Award winner Schulman's other books include Rat Bohemia, The Child, Empathy, and Ties that Bind (The New Press).
