       Additional Information  
     
      The Hope is five miles long, one mile high. A ship launched on a voyage to a new utopia - a philanthropist's dream. But there has been no landfall and the ship's purpose has been forgotten and between decks life is decaying into a phantasmogoric nightmare as the passengers descend into madness or simply revert to instinct. The Hope was reviewed ecstatically everywhere from the TLS, Spectator and Interzone and is shown to be even more relevant now than it was in 1990.
