CORY DOCTOROW will be will be signing HOMELAND, the follow-up to the hugely successful LITTLE BROTHER at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore, 179 Shaftsbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR on Wednesday 18th September from 6 – 7pm.
Set two years after the events of Little Brother, in Homeland Marcus faces a whole new set of problems. California's economy has collapsed, taking his parents’ jobs and his university tuition with it. Thanks to his activist past, Marcus lands a job as webmaster for a muckraking politician who promises reform. Things are never simple, though: soon Marcus finds himself embroiled in lethal political intrigue and the sharp end of class warfare, American style.
Fast moving, passionate, and as current as next week, Homeland is every bit the equal of Little Brother —a paean to activism, to courage, to the drive to make the world a better place.
