Au­thor: Christo­pher Priest Pub­lisher: Gol­lancz The reis­sues of Christo­pher Priest’s back cat­a­logue con­tinue with this 1990 re­lease. Set in an op­pres­sive al­ter­nate Bri­tain where a Ch­er­nobyl- like dis­as­ter in France has spread fall­out over the south of Eng­land, it fol­lows Alice, a writer whose friend was mur­dered. Switch­ing be­tween the some­times com­pletely con­flict­ing view­points of Alice and an “in­for­ma­tion man­age­ment” ex­pert, this satir­i­cal spin on life un­der Thatcher concludes in un­sat­is­fy­ingly abrupt fash­ion.
