       Additional Information  
      With a heightened sense of the boundless possibility and lurking doom that Orwell and Huxley once envisioned, Matthew Derby's stories provide a glimpse into an intricately imagined world-a world in which clouds are treated with behavioral serum, children are handicapped by their ability to float, and all food (including Popsicles) is made of meat. They parody our contemporary notions of family, government, and science with razor-sharp wit and explore the darkest of human longings with heartbreaking sincerity. The result: a book that is both a brilliant satire and an assault on the senses.
