The Not Yet

Praised for its political vision, literary voice, and environmental prescience, The Not Yet brings forth a searing vision of the future. Set in the ravaged and abandoned Gulf Coast in 2121, the author describes a world where the wealthy Heirs control  all of society's resources.  Through life extension, they can live hundreds of years. Outside, the poor barely survive. Malcolm de Lazarus, twenty, has been lucky --he's counting on joining the elite. But when his fortune mysteriously disappears, he must sail to the chaotic, abandoned New Orleans Islands for answers. On the way, he encounters the darkest side of Heirs' privilege, which threatens everything he knows and loves.
