    DescriptionPAPERBACK EDITION 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).

    Review quote
    Clever word craft, poetic political satire and biting humor on every page. ―"Publishers Weekly" Schulman injects wry political commentary and sly cultural satire into her intellectually dynamic plot with infectious constancy. ―Richard Labonte, "Book Marks" Shockingly of the moment ... "The Mere Future" is set a few years hence "when things are slightly better because there has been a big change," and, as she always does, Schulman fashions a writing style that suits the setting ... [This is probably Schulman's funniest book. ― "Lambda Book Report"
