How many times have we heard someone say "I’d love to live forever in the 60s (or the 70s, or the 80s …)"? And how many times have we heard "It would be so great not to have to worry about the future"? Future Perfect is a novel that takes the reader to a world where someone has already excessively granted those wishes, turning the dream into a reality. The basic idea is simple. A totalitarian regime has abolished the concept of the future because it generates too much anxiety in the population. The territory therefore is divided in enormous militarized zones (the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s) where everyone, dazed and happy, lives in his or her favorite decade, repeating the years over and over again. Is it boring? No, it is reassuring. The future causes one to think, it upsets, it causes tension, therefore it has been simply abolished (‘Cutting Ties With the Future’ is the name that the brains in the Headquarters have given to the entire operation). One courageous girl tries to escape from this space-time cage to find out what the real future is like. The story is told by a trashman who works for the regime, who slowly decides to help the girl to flee. An entertaining and paradoxical novel, it tips its hat to certain classics of literature as well as novels that combine reality and fiction such as those of Philip K. Dick or films such as "The Truman Show" or "Matrix", the social satires of 1984 by George Orwell or Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury where humanity is happy to be subjugated by an oppressive dictatorship, not to mention the biting narratives of Kurt Vonnegut. Walter Fontana is a writer of novels, theatrical scripts, screenplays for both television and film with collaborations with all the most important tv presenters and comedians of Italian television.
