Marc-Uwe Kling

Publisher: Ullstein


Welcome to QualityLand, in a not-too-distant future: Everything runs smoothly. Work, leisure and relationships are optimised by algorithms. Nevertheless, Peter Arbeitsloser increasingly feels that something is wrong with his life. If the system is really so perfect, why are there drones that suffer from a fear of flying or combat robots with post-traumatic stress disorder? Why are the machines becoming more and more human and at the same time humans more and more machine-like? Marc-Uwe Kling has interwoven the promises and fears of the digital present into a startling satire about the future that will have a long-lasting effect. Visionary, enigmatic, and as funny as his Kangaroo Trilogy.
