Frauen haben die Regierung an sich gerissen, Pillen geben ewige Jugend, religiöse Endzeitsekten schießen wie Pilze aus dem Boden und ein genervter Mann kettet seine Frau kurzerhand im Keller an …
Wir schreiben das Jahr 2031: Staatsfeminismus, Hitzewellen, Wirbelstürme, Endzeitstimmung und ein 50-jähriges Klassentreffen in der Hamburger Vorortkneipe ›Ehrlich‹. Dank der Verjüngungspille Ephebo, der auch Sebastian Bürger sein gutes Aussehen verdankt, sehen die Schulkameraden im besten Rentenalter alle wieder aus wie Zwanzig- bis Dreißigjährige, und als Sebastian seine heimliche Jugendliebe Elli trifft, ist es um ihn geschehen.Wen interessiert es da noch, dass die Krebsrate von
Ephebo bei 60 % innerhalb der nächsten zehn Jahre liegt?
Alles könnte so schön sein, wäre da nicht Sebastians Frau, die ehemalige Ministerin für Umwelt, Naturschutz, Kraftwerkstilllegung und Atommüllentsorgung, die er seit zwei Jahren in seinem Keller gefangen hält. Dort muss sie ihm seine Lieblingskekse backen und auch sonst in jeder Hinsicht zu Diensten sein. Seiner neuen Liebe steht sie jetzt allerdings im Weg. Bei dem Versuch, sich seine Frau vom Hals zu schaffen, löst Sebastian eine Katastrophe nach der anderen aus . . .

Aldous Huxley wrote: "If such a lot people stay unaware of ourselves, the reason is, self-knowledge is painful and we want the pleasures of illusion." One may possibly infer from this comment that seeing ourselves as others see us - and acknowledging our very noticeable imperfections - is the start of precise wisdom.
Oscillating among parody, parable, and prophecy, ALL approximately EARTHLINGS is a piece of hyper-realism. As writer William F. Wu writes in his creation, "[it] is journalist W. E. Gutman's so much chilling dystopia. The ancient retrospectives that undergird his narrative and the apocalyptic inferences they evoke advised Gutman to finish that people are neither capable nor prepared to regulate their collective destinies: grasping, hedonistic and reckless, they're engrossed within the here-and-now in their own lives. Scouring via humankind's such a lot sordid chronicles of cruelty and hypocrisy, corruption and apathy, agony, melancholy and dying, and extrapolating from the teachings they convey, Gutman envisions a state of affairs of otherworldly retribution that turns out as becoming because it is terrible to contemplate.
"His use of a technological know-how fiction equipment (he does not maroon Earthlings on a few far flung planet; in its place, he transports an alien emissary to Earth and offers him a voice) basically has a tendency to harden the sinister nature of his auguries. within the approach, Gutman takes on and unapologetically slays a few effective sacred cows: God; faith; the papacy; evangelism; imperialism; militarism; capitalism; corporatism; mercantilism, and consumerism, all of which, he reckons, incestuously conspire opposed to peace and calmness in the world and which, may still Earth live to tell the tale the evils their mixed affects wreak, may perhaps sooner or later unfold past its celestial frontiers."
