Body Tourists

Science fiction

Youth is wasted on the young, isn't it?

Her observation of our species is tender, precise, illuminating - Hilary Mantel

In this version of London, there is a small, private clinic. Behind its layers of security, procedures are taking place on poor, robust teenagers from northern Estates in exchange for thousands of pounds - procedures that will bring the wealthy dead back to life in these young supple bodies for fourteen days.

It's an opportunity for wrongs to be righted, for fathers to meet grandsons, for scientists to see their work completed. Old wine in new bottles.

But at what cost?

The first chapter of BODY TOURISTS will be broadcast on Radio 4 on June 4th, 2019, and available online subsequently.
