Description

‘Revelatory. Harry Harrison’s novel about Earth on the edge of disaster is both bracing and cathartic … impressively prescient’ Guardian

The planet’s population has exploded and resources are stretched to breaking point. And, in a sweltering, overcrowded New York City of 35 million desperate inhabitants, a police detective must try to solve a murder. The basis of the cult film Soylent Green, this eerily prophetic novel is a nightmarish vision of a world in meltdown.

‘A cautionary tale of what might happen if American consumption goes unchecked’ Los Angeles Times

‘An author with a serious purpose and a subversive wit’ Christopher Priest
