Description

‘Recalls Orwell’s 1984 and Wells’s The Time Machine … a revelation’ Guardian

On 4 November 2052, Fremder Gorn is discovered drifting in deep space. He has no spacesuit, no helmet, no oxygen, but he is still alive: the sole survivor from the mysteriously vanished ship Clever Daughter. How did he get here? To find out, Fremder must search through memory, dream and the unknowable fragments of his own mind.

‘A wildly imaginative piece of science fiction’ The Times

‘Unputdownable, moving, ingenious … it will remain in my head with troubling images and scenes for a long time’ A. N. Wilson, Evening Standard

Publisher Review

Recalls Orwell's 1984 and Wells's The Time Machine.... a revelation. * The Guardian * Unputdownable, moving, ingenious... it will remain in my head with troubling images and scenes for a long time. -- A. N. Wilson * Evening Standard * Shot through with Hoban's trademark luminous prose... A book to read and reread. * Financial Times * He displays prodigious storytelling skills and an uncanny talent for fleshing out allegories. The result is an urgent, bitterly ironic but tender evocation of the capacities of the human spirit. * Independent on Sunday * A funky and funny tour de force. * Mail on Sunday *
