Sarah Schulman

The Mere Future

Join us to celebrate the paperback release of Sarah Schulman’s most recent novel,
The Mere Future. Sparkling with wit and provocative social commentary, The Mere
Future crosses many genres, including literary fiction, mystery, fantasy, poetry and stand-
up comedy. In her dystopian vision, New York has morphed into an idealized version of

itself. Rent is cheap, homelessness is over, and everyone works in Marketing. Despite the
utopian surface, however, there is a disturbing malaise that infects the population.
Meanwhile our heroine and her girlfriend, Nadine, just want to fall in love again, but
can’t help noticing that the social packaging may not be recyclable. The award-winning
author of twelve novels, Schulman (People in Trouble, Rat Bohemia) is one of
literature’s most important chroniclers of contemporary queer life. In The Mere Future,
she creates a story that is at once sexy and funny, while openheartedly reflecting the lives
we live.
