Product description

"Clever word craft, poetic political satire and biting humor on every page."--"Publishers Weekly"The paperback edition of Sarah Schulman's dystopian satire about urban mores set in New York sometime in the future, when the city has morphed into an idealized version of itself: where rent is cheap, homelessness is nonexistent, and the only job left is marketing. But all is not as it seems, culminating in a murder committed by a prominent New Yorker and a resulting trial that transfixes the city.Kessler Award-winner Sarah Schulman's other books include "Rat Bohemia," "The Child," and "Ties that Bind."

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"
