The year is 2045 and a well respected newspaper columnist, David Cohen, is offered a once in a lifetime assignment. David is accustomed to his somewhat mundane lifestyle, and suddenly finds himself in unfamiliar territory and danger. David is desperate to uncover the secrets of Northland. This segregated city was built within the U.S borders and its policy is "White Christians Only." The leaders of Northland legally circumvented the laws to build their city in the heart of America. A hand picked group of media and journalists from outside of Northland were invited to this city to interview its people and leaders and report to the world the truth about this well guarded city. For years the people of the United States have come to believe that Northland and its leaders have other plans that could change the way they live, and alter their lifestyles. David, with the help of his assistant Connie, must obtain the proof he needs before he can write his story. David unexpectedly finds himself falling for Connie and struggles to keep his focus.
Will other areas and other groups of people now living in the United States follow the same path as the city of Northland, or can we break the bigotry that has always existed in America?

I bought this book thinking (without researching) that it was a new novel by John Barth, author of such fine novels as Chimera, The Sot-weed Factor, and The Last Voyage of Somebody the Sailor...turns out it was by a John Barth but not THE John Barth. I read it anyway. The characters and their development were poor, the plot was totally untenable, and the grammar (Holy cow! The grammar!) was simply awful. Buyers should be aware that this is a small press/vanity press release and should only be purchased by friends and family of the author or by literary masochists. This is simply the worst book I've ever read.
