Description
ADVENTURES IN DYSTOPIA plots the ups and downs in the improbably interconnected lives of six individuals-three rich, three poor-spanning three continents. Please meet: KORO, an illiterate housekeeper trying to keep body and soul together in post-war Cote d'Ivoire, while being stalked by a sadistic gangster. She works for COLIN, a shy conservationist, dedicated to saving one of West Africa's last remaining parks, while suppressing painful memories with booze. He supports SUNIL, a clever but dirt-poor Delhi teenager, hoping to find a wife, become India's next billionaire, and solve the mystery of his mother's death. He is scamming KELLY, a young American evangelist saving souls in the slums of India, blogging along the way. Her aunt is MONIQUE, an up-tight development banker, dead set on a promotion and convincing everyone that she gives a crap about the poor. She has the misfortune to meet JUAN, a taxi driver, petty thief, and wife-beater, hoping to keep his son from following the same path. DANIEL SELLEN works and blogs for a Washington, DC-based international financial institution, and has lived the last ten years in India, Cote d'Ivoire, and Colombia. He holds a Masters in Anthropology and a PhD in Agricultural Economics. He lives in Bogota.
