An edgy, biting fable of Orwellian tradition, A State of Mind leaps into the future with a story full of ingenuity and horrifying realism. Clare Bentley lives in a world where order and the cult of the efficient have reached a terrifying extreme, where criminals are eliminated, euthanasia is law and suicide is regulated by an outrageous regime. The Brotherhood rules with the brute force of an iron fist; life is State-controlled. But Clare Bentley is surprisingly successful – she enjoys fortune as a prosperous woman with a lover and a future. Until, that is, tragedy strikes and her dreams turn to nightmares. Choosing to opt out of life, she fills in the necessary forms for suicide and is sent to a Home of Rest, but there she meets Peter, a renegade Catholic Priest who defies the age he lives in. Peter seems to defy death too. And what’s more, he’s determined to reshape her life and perhaps the Brotherhood with it.
