9780099511434: We: Introduction by Will Self

SHORTLISTED FOR THE OXFORD WEIDENFELD TRANSLATION PRIZE 2008

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY WILL SELF

The citizens of the One State live in a condition of 'mathematically infallible happiness'. D-503 decides to keep a diary of his days working for the collective good in this clean, blue city state where nature, privacy and individual liberty have been eradicated. But over the course of his journal D-503 suddenly finds himself caught up in unthinkable and illegal activities - love and rebellion.

Banned on its publication in Russia in1921, We is the first modern dystopian novel and a satire on state control that has once again become chillingly relevant.

Review:

"This is a book to look out for" (George Orwell)

"Zamyatin reminds us, Adam did not wish to be happy, he wished to be "free"" (Anthony Burgess)

"Precursor to much more famous works by Huxley and Orwell, this antidote to totalitarianism, written by someone who genuinely knew what that sort of existence was like, is the anti-Stalinist dystopia to beat them all - even Brave New World, 1984, and Koestler's Darkness at Noon" (Toby Green)

"Two of the most iconic novels in the English language - Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and 1984 by George Orwell - owe an enormous debt to Zamyatin. We is the ur-text of science-fiction dystopias...the product of a powerful imagination" ( Wall Street Journal)

"One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century" (Irving Howe)

Book Description:

The suppressed work that both Nineteen Eighty-Four and Brave New World are based on, and the first modern dystopian novel
