(From the publisher):
There hasn't been a utopian novel quite like this since Gulliver's Travel's
, and there has never been a spy thriller quite like this either.
So what is it? The almost triumphant return of Russel Wren, the self-proclaimed playwright of great promise who's still stymied on that troublesome third act. It is here, Nowhere, that Thomas Berger unites the absurd with the ridiculous to create a world that is all so new and yet so familiar, in a place so far away it can only be close to home.
Russel Wren is shanghaied into service by an organization alternately called “the Bunch, the Troop, the Rock, the Pack, the Gang,” who bombed his office and sent him off to Saint Sebastien, a small country tucked among the borders of Austria, Germany, and Czechoslovakia. His mission? To investigate the Sebastiani Liberation Front, a terrorist group avowed to the overthrow of Prince Sebastian XXIII.
