Future Perfect

14 Feb 2018

Two of Britain’s leading novelists discuss how they imagine and write about the future.

Nicola Barker’s Goldsmith’s Prize-winning novel H(A)PPY is set in a world where everything is known and open, where there can be no doubt, no hatred, no poverty, no greed.

In Nick Harkaway’s acclaimed new novel Gnomon, near-future Britain is not just a nation under surveillance but one built on it: a radical experiment in personal transparency and ambient direct democracy.
