With a keen eye toward current political trends, Walter Mosley projects a near-future United States in which justice is blind in at least one eye and the ranks of the disenfranchised have swollen to dangerous levels. The world of Futureland is delineated in nine interconnecting stories whose characters appear and reappear in each others' lives. From Ptolemy Bent, the child genius whose mercy killing of his beloved uncle and grandmother sends him to one of the world's first privatized prisons, to Fera Jones, the first female inter-gender heavyweight champion of the world, who leaves the ring for a political career, Mosley paints a clear picture of what the future could hold if our own political climate continues.
