About The Book

Linda is desperate to be one of the lucky eight chosen to take part in the world's mostambitious ecological experiment. Gazing longingly at Ecosphere II, which rises like aspaceship from the Arizona desert, Linda knows she can survive under its glass dome.

Competition is fierce between the hopefuls, among them smooth-talking PR manRamsay, and Dawn, a nave beauty. All are certain that they would never, ever, breakclosure before two years are up-unlike their discredited predecessors.

Inside this humid microcosm, the terranauts' labours over crops and livestock, theirbattles with creepy crawlies, their hostilities and sexual dalliances are all observed bythe tourists who come to gawp, Mission Control's cameras and the watchful eye of themedia. As the crew struggles to control nature, and hunger sets in, the snake in thisEden starts to look unmistakably human.

Inspired by real-life events, The Terranauts is a darkly comic, acutely insightful story ofhuman behaviour, animal instincts, idealism and ambition. Placing utopian visions andindividual motives under the microscope, this is T. C. Boyle at his acerbic, pitch-perfectbest.
