Overview


The Age of Sinatra is the long-awaited sequel to the 1972 sci-fi cult classic Motorman. Part political allegory, part science-fiction dystopia, the world David Ohle creates is disturbing, humorous, and oddly compelling. The novel catches up with the luckless protagonist Moldenke, after the most recent "Forgetting." Moldenke finds himself in possession only of his name and the bare facts of his former life while he cruises on the Titanic through an alternate reality where elective deformation is a fashion trend and grasshoppers are the main course. His travel mates are Ophelia Balls, an artist; Gerald Hilter, a journalist; Agnes Moldenke, his mother and the inventor of edible money; Dr. Burnheart, his old mentor; and a talkative neutrodyne named Hugo Vink. The Age of Sinatra is an entry in the new series Soft Skull ShortLit — Pocket Books for a New World.
