KIRKUS REVIEW

Artful disorientation, ultimate paranoia: what really happened on the 1981 Venus expedition? In this fractured diary Harry Evans, sole institutionalized survivor, wonders what was simulation, what his own mad fantasy, and how the Captain fell into the sun, as the totalitarian-bureaucratic space program grills him and Venusians zap his brain -- or do they? Prurient, cheeky, chilling, a mind-blown mini-Orwellian satire-parable on dehumanization.
