Imagine a world where everyone knows everything about everybody. A world where to question ignorance and intolerance is to commit a Crime against Faith. On a hot Sagittarian morning in the year 56 ATF, Denver Sewell struggles to work through the usual crowds of near-naked, tattooed people. He is confronted by the intimidating figure of his Parish Confessor. Why has Denver not been streaming his every moment of sexual intimacy onto the community website like everybody else? Does he think he's different or special in some way? Better than his fellow man and woman? Ben Elton's dark, savagely comic story imagines a post-apocalyptic society where religious intolerance combines with a confessional sex obsessed, self-centric culture to create a world where nakedness is modesty, ignorance is wisdom and privacy is a dangerous perversion. Is this a chilling vision of what's to come?

A great dystopian novel...a modern-day sucessor to 1984.
