Naomi Alderman brought us the Women's Prize for Fiction winning The Power which became a highly successful Amazon Prime series. She is not only an award winning novelist but a video game designer who has worked in the tech industry for decades.
In The Future she is speculating on the vast excessive wealth and power of the big tech companies, projecting into a dystopian self serving billionaire elite controlled world. Alderman believes in the human capacity to act in the greater good and casts her reluctant heroine Martha from frying pan to fire in a thrill a minute ride to salvage a human victory from the jaws of a greedy self-interested defeat. Topical and fun.
