9780099592860: The Silent History

A generation of children are born without speech, without comprehension, without language entirely.

At first, they are just medical curiosities. But their numbers swell, and soon they grow into an established underclass, occupying squats and communes around the world. To some they are seen as a threat; to others, as a salvation. Some suspect they may have other abilities beyond our understanding.

The children cannot tell you their story. Instead we rely on The Silent History, a collection of testimonies from those touched by the phenomenon. Parents, doctors, opportunist inventors, cult leaders, and vigilantes, recall what they have endured and what they have inflicted on others. They will take you from a recognisable present to a real and unsettling future. You will not want to look away.

Recensione:

"An imaginative investigation into the besetting issues of our information-saturated society… Manages to feel relentlessly thoughtful and new." (Tim Martin The Times)

"For all technology can add to storytelling, it’s better as a proper book… Very funny… Makes some keen observations about the trouble people have understanding one another." ( Stuff)

"The high-concept premise is brilliantly simple." ( i)

"A compelling story about difference, rights and power." (Richard House Guardian)

Descrizione del libro:

A ingenious thriller about a generation unable to speak - 'entirely revolutionary' (Wired)
