Join Me




Idealistic young author sets out to create the perfect utopian society. Nothing complicated then!

WANTED: 100 people to live in my new world order. A perfect utopia of our own design. No riff- raff, convicts or bongos. Please note: no space travel will be involved in this project. Cult- seekers need not apply. If still interested, go to www.join- me.co.uk to sign up. In one of the most original books of the year, Danny Wallace, award- winning journalist, and co- author of ARE YOU DAVE GORMAN?, places an advert on the internet and waits- Inspired by stories of his great uncle Gallus and his failed attempts to set up a commune in post- war Switzerland, Danny tries to do the same and this time succeed. He will travel anywhere, meet anyone. And he'll take it very, very seriously. JOIN ME is the magnificent story of his attempt to recruit 100 people to create a perfect world. But what will that be? Where will they live? Will they have rules? Will they agree on anything? Is one man's Heaven another man's Hell? This modern take on Utopia, will say a million things about the world in which we live. And if you've read ARE YOU DAVE GORMAN? you'll know that it will be very ,very funny.
