it was ok
Read in October, 2010

A 2nd generation british immigrant is tortured for offhand remarks in a comic novel, in a black prison run by a british government ministry, in a kafkaesque farce of abuse and torture, while a parallel plot takes place in an escapist science fiction universe that the protagonist retreats to for escape, which mirrors the iniquities of the real world. Could take or leave it, neither storyline could stand on their own, and their interplay provided the only meat of the piece.
