Description

In this sci-fi novel, the world deals with an aging population, crumbling infrastructure, and polluted ecosystem by taking several drastic steps. Set in the near future, travel is extremely restricted. Food, water, energy, and healthcare are rationed. All forms of birth control are outlawed, except abortion. Free healthcare means the terminally ill old and poor only receive morphine while they wait to die. To access most services, people must wear a computer link known as a PRISM. A privileged few still enjoy lavish lifestyles, never aging, nor getting sick. As a wealthy older gay man describes coming of age to his nephew, some of the contradictory government policies begin to make sense, as well as the role he played in shaping those policies.show more
