Shackleton's Man Goes South

Publisher: Science Museum

Number of pages: 178

Description:
Tony White has written a bold novel-cum-manifesto, a prophecy, satire, and warning, and a gripping polar allegory for the era of global warming and human trafficking. In the steps of Swift, Blake and Aldous Huxley, he brings a puzzlemaster's ingenuity, a political observer's despair, a voracious appetite for geo-political knowledge and a storyteller's sense to create a stark vision of a future that may be coming sooner than anyone can bear to think.
