All our wrong todays : a novel
By Elan Mastai
You know the future that people in the 1950s imagined we’d have? Well, it happened. In Tom Barren’s 2016, humanity thrives in a techno-utopian paradise of flying cars and moving sidewalks. Except Tom just can’t seem to find his place in this dazzling world. It’s a quest to figure out who he really is and what his future–our future–is supposed to be.
