Annotation

Dystopian satire. Tomas = There’s Only Money and Sex. Much fantasy. The dominant media network is SHIT-TV, and life is a meaningless round of false pleasure. On the French Riviera, women have such large breasts that they have to support them on mobile trolleys. Extreme corruption. Violence. A time machine hidden in a fairground allows visits to the near and far future. The protagonist, Tomas, is something of a Messiah bent on changing this world.
