Walter Mosley's projection of life in America a generation from now portrays a society not always protected by current laws or ethics and subject to darker, more radical and rebellious governance. Richard Allen is a controlled reader, providing calm conviction to tales of bizarre lifestyles and disturbing conditions. Allen introduces the reader to several strange characters, including Fera Jones, boxing Queen of the Ring, an adoring daughter fighting to save her father's life. We meet Popo, a child genius, whom the government wants to lock up forever, and Dr. Kismet, the richest man in the world, whose insanity has led him to believe he is the Messiah. These chronicles and others force the listener to between today's society and a more foreboding future in which individual survival may well be at stake. B.J.P.
