Description

Like prison-break movie THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION with teenagersThe story begins with Mo, Harete and Moth on the run, chased by the tyrannical forces of the Institute. Then, it flashes back to the weeks leading up to their break out. As the three teens follow a line of pylons towards the Other country and the hope of freedom, we see how they cobble together their friendship and the tools of their escape.As the teens weave together stories from their past, present and imaginations, the truth becomes harder and harder to bear. Only the long line of wires and the lure of another way of life pulls them towards their goal. A story of hope, peril and the fight against tyranny, written by a debut author with a degree in particle physics, every word is knocked against those surrounding it to form a fascinating action-packed read.

About Elon Dann

Elon Dann grew up in rural Lincolnshire, where his childhood was one of 'sensational boredom and ordinariness set against eye-strainingly wide fields of barley on which V-bombers cast triangular shadows'. Television educated him, although he did attend the local grammar school for appearance's sake. At eighteen he left Lincolnshire for Manchester, where he studied Physics and idolised Bertrand Russell and Kurt Vonnegut.After a spell of being an academic, Elon has worked in various IT jobs. He now lives with his wife and two children in Worcestershire. At the weekend he enjoys voluntary litter-picking, 'sifting through the cast-off waste of society like a lanky Womble'. CLOCKWISE TO TITAN is Elon's first book.
