A Novel of the Transformation of Humanity
From Arthur C. Clarke, the brilliant mind that brought us 2001: A Space Odyssey, and Stephen Baxter, the top British SF writer of the decade, comes a novel of a day, not so far in the future, when the walls of time and distance have suddenly turned to glass.
When a brilliant, driven industrialist harnesses cutting-edge physics to enable people everywhere, at trivial cost, to see one another at all times: around every corner, through every wall, into everyone's most private, hidden, and even intimate moments, it is the sudden and complete abolition of human privacy--forever.
Then, as society reels, the same technology proves able to look backward in time as well. What happens next is a story only Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Baxter could tell. The Light of Other Days is a novel that will change your view of what it is to be human.
