Summary
"In the year 2119, instantaneous transportation technology has altered almost every facet of human civilization, improving countless industries and practices while also leaving behind a growing population who can't afford to keep up. But some people still prefer the traditional ways of getting from point A to point B, including Tristan Keys, a writer who refuses to embrace the technological advances everyone finds so mandatory. When tiny cracks start to appear in the world around him, he has to wonder if he hasn't been a pawn of technology all along. A gorgeously illustrated sci-fi tale that aims a spotlight on contemporary issues such as overconsumption, climate change, identity theft, and transhumanism."--Publisher's website"Celebrated author Zep (A Story of Men, A Strange and Beautiful Sound) weaves a mystery borne from humanity's addiction to convenience and technology, and the dangers such addiction can propose. This gorgeously illustrated, poignant sci-fi tale aims a spotlight on current social trends such as over-consumption, climate change, identity theft, and transhumanism"--, Provided by publisher
