WALDEN 3.0

If Steve Jobs designed a utopian community, had it filtered by Lewis Black and then painted by Picasso, it would look like Walden 3.0. Jacob is a young reporter who's been asked to tell the story of Walden 3.0, a secretive community with its own culture, educational and healthcare systems, religious beliefs, and economic structure. Jacob's head swirls with revelations that the monogamy of the "outside world" has been replaced with serial marriage; parenting is a communal responsibility; death panels are a reality; and everyone gets to be god for a day. Torn from today's headlines, Walden 3.0 offers a worldview that will alternately delight and dismay everyone. Read an excerpt here.
