Description

The exciting sequel to R/evolution.

Corporations, in the hunt for his elusive genes, have ripped apart communities and twisted laws to try to cash in on his slow ageing, and its promise for immortality. Their minions in the government have erased the past to control the future.

To preserve his anonymity and, with it, a chance at equality for millions, he's witnessed the deterioration of personal freedoms, ethical boundaries and basic infrastructure. But some acts he can't just sit by and watch.

In his quest to save people from being hunted down, William happens upon the survivors who will shape his destiny and the world's fate.

Now that those in power have sidelined all progress they can't profit from, it's up to William, Lillian, a girl born in a marine salvage yard and destined for more than the depths, and us others to wrestle back evolution, lest it become one more product to manufacture cheaply, poorly and for one faction's gain.

Why you'll love Evolution

This is a book that speaks of all the possible outcomes of the long-term fight between the haves and have-nots. In a world of undeniable climate disaster, unspeakable politics and disaster capitalism, where money and wealth and the occasional remarkable person are all that make things happen on a significant scale, Evolution is a book that cries out to be read. Despite the aforementioned hope, Johnson pulls no punches and provides no fluff. She's all about adaptation and a preparedness to see things through to the bitter result of all that has gone before.

If you've got an interest in the human condition, an anarchist's desire to change the system, or if you just want to read a story that takes society's current nightmares and places them forefront in the imagination, this one's for you.

Book Review: Evolution by Tenea D. Johnson

If you've got an interest in the human condition, an anarchist's desire to change the system, or if you just want to read a story that takes society's current nightmares and places them forefront in the imagination, this one's for you. I recommend buying both in the duology and reading them one after the other.

About Tenea D. Johnson

Tenea was born in Kentucky. She took with her, the calm of the Ohio River and the swell of honesty (sometimes refreshing, sometimes catastrophic) that afflicts the folks born along its banks. Adoring of ideas, she graduated from the New College of Florida (enrol there now and thank her later) and NYU's Gallatin School, as well as attending Clarion. Writing sustains her; music saves her. As often as possible, she straddles their borders to create compositions/fusions/hyphenated watchamacallit better heard than described.

So far the Knitting Factory, Dixon Place, The Public Theater, and others have opened their doors to the form.

Her work has appeared in Mothership: Tales of Afrofuturism, African Voices, Arise, Humanities in the South, Infinite Matrix, Contemporary American Women Poets, Shades of Blue and Gray, Whispers in the Night: Dark Dreams III and Necrologue, among others. She is the author of a poetry/short prose collection, Starting Friction as well as the novels, Smoketown and R/evolution. Smoketown won the 2011 Carl Brandon Parallax Award; R/evolution also received an honorable mention.
