    DescriptionThis title welcomes us to the island paradise where utopianism and human greed are set to collide - with catastrophic results. The whole world is beginning to fall in love with Atlantica. Miles from anywhere, the man-made island is a true twenty-first century vision. With a thriving economy based on global waste disposal and an infrastructure run by advanced software, politician-free Atlantica is the envy of other nations and a consumer paradise. But, even Utopia has its outcasts. Meet Harvey Kidd, petty criminal, papier mache craftsman, forlorn lover and holder of an explosive secret. Is the system about to discover that it spat out its most difficult customer too soon?

    Review quote
    'Dazzling ... Liz Jensen is one of the few living writers who can be described as genuinely original' Matt Thorne 'Bitingly funny, unsettling and touching' Sunday Times 'Sparkling ... sharp, funny and richly imagined, this is as timely a warning about rampant consumerism as Orwell's 1984 was about state control' Sunday Express 'An exuberant fable that is a million miles from the current slew of relationship novels. Liz Jensen has more invention and wit in her little finger than all of their creators put together' Independent
