|My secretary & Delirium!|
Of literary interest…Each chapter of the novel begins with a quotation from a fictional but realistic-sounding source such as the government’s “Safety, Health and Happiness Handbook,” a “proverb” or even a nursery tale that sounds almost as if it could be from our own world. These headings give the book a very near-future feeling.
Finally, just gotta say…A great love story set in an incredibly authentic-feeling dystopian world, complete with its own literary canon.
