Annotation

The novel is set in a version of Reynold’s future U. S. where corrupt politicians are trying to revise the Constitution to their own benefit, a future version of the F. B.I (the Inter-American Bureau of Investigations), has a Division of Clandestine Services that supports the dominant parties and sends out a hit-man to kill the theoretician of a group challenging that dominance, and American Indians are mounting a revolt. Many people in the now almost entirely automated country live on what is here called GAS or the Guaranteed Annual Stipend and some life in unrelated extended families. This is called the Ultra-Welfare State or Peoples’ Capitalism. While much of the novel is satirical or dystopian, the extended family that is one focus of the novel is eutopian, but with much satire also.
