This is one of my favorites so far of the 2011 Man Booker longlist - I don't know if it will move forward, but I absolutely enjoyed it. Taking place in a future just ahead of ours, in a world where the future of humanity is in jeopardy it's really about the sacrifices we make versus those we expect others to, and the way the human mind can focus on the absolutely irrelevant. And it was painful and troubling at times, but so good at capturing emotions.
