My first novel, published on August 9, 2017.
America, 2028. The War for Equity has begun!
A new bureaucracy called the Historical Reparations Administration oversees enforcement of restitution for colonialism and slavery. Supercomputers scan old documents while drones monitor both Debtors and Beneficiaries from coast to coast. Reality TV shows and religious cults help the nation atone for its sins.
This is the story of everyday people caught in the crossfire between idealism and technology.
“Reparations USA” is the frantically inventive future history that creates an entire world, complete with its own slang and a diverse cast of sympathetic characters. Leave your prejudices and preconceptions at the door, because Philip Wyeth’s wild first novel is full of heart… humor… and total surveillance!
This is Book One of the “Reparations” series. 36,500 words.
