On A Wandering Planet
Published by Cinnamon Press
As traffic rises and congestion soars society knows that something has to be done, but what if that something was not anti-congestion measures, but tearing down houses to create a mobile population, living in vans, available as needed? What if, to protect the environment, we cut ourselves off from the environment entirely? In a mechanised society ‘free’ from nature, Miranda, recently bereaved, struggling with loss of the natural world as well as loss of her partner, Elizabeth, and increasingly suspicious of the rhetoric of perpetual wandering, begins to piece together how society came to move so far and how there might, after all, be another key.
This compelling debut novel combines the fast pacing of an intelligent exploratory novel with a character driven narrative; inventive and highly accessible.
Jean Harrison is retired, writing steadily and has poetry published in a number of magazines. Her first two poetry collections were Junction Road and Terrain, both with Cinnamon Press. She lives in Settle.
