Taking place in the city of Dodge, a governmentless, anarchic place where everything is run by private corporations, everybody hates their job, and everybody works to get on a plane to the “New World”, a place of peace and plenty. Early in the novel, the main character, Carl Intoever, is told he is the messiah of the only religion -that being Probabilism- and as such, is labelled “Schrodinger reborn.” The novel then chronicles his change from being desperate to “get out of Dodge” so he may fulfill his destiny in the new world to that of taking on the corrupt establishment of Dodge at great personal risk.
For daring to oppose the ruling corporations, Carl is shackled and escorted aboard one of the horrific prison barges – vessels designed to break those considered problematic by Dodgian society. Carl decides he will not be broken. Instead, he starts building a rebellion on the high seas. The barge captains are merciless, however, and if Carl isn’t careful, he might just get his lifelong wish: to live in the New World…
