John Turnerabout this book: This novel is set in the present and recent past but starts from the premise that, already, scientific advances have increased life expectancy to hundreds of years. This state of affairs has not been achieved without problems and, in particular, the boredom of living a single life has been an issue that the government has felt obliged to manage. The Department of Selective Memory Elimination will download your mind and replace it with someone else's. That way, you can live several different lives. Sounds good? Ah, if only it was that simple.
Many people would like the situation to be restored to the original and groups are formed to protest and lobby for a return to a natural state of being. The government becomes anxious about this, infiltrates the groups with spies and decides on a ploy to change the minds of the rebels. A well-loved celebrity is encouraged to join in on a stunt but she has ideas of her own.
The author is a man in his 90s whose rich experience of life is reflected in the pages of this book.
