“Pushes right up to the edge of satire but never over it. The Futurist is at turns glib, trenchant, cynical, heartfelt, daffy, and harrowing – often on the same page.”—Entertainment Weekly “Superbly cynical. . . . A book so blackly accurate it can predict tomorrow’s headlines. . . . Othmer has a wild comic touch.” —The Village Voice“A funny, thoughtful satire of corporate life, mass media and political manipulation. . . .You’re laughing, and then you’re feeling deeply unsettled about the state of the world.”—The Washington Post Book World“A tour de force. Othmer’s cultural riffing is a true joy, and his caustic humor is a devilish delight. Like The Corrections, this novel bristles with heady contemporary concepts, yet you can polish it off on an overnight flight.”—L.A. Weekly
