The Unit - Taschenbuch

2009, ISBN: 1590513134

[SR: 290920], Paperback, [EAN: 9781590513132], Other Press, Other Press, Book, [PU: Other Press], 2009-06-09, Other Press, In paradise, nobody can hear you scream Single, childless, fifty and deemed economically worthless, Dorrit leaves behind her married lover, her beloved dog and her ramshackle house and joins the residents of the Second Reserve Bank Unit for biological material, resigned to making her contribution to society by giving herself, organ by organ, to the 'necessary' population outside the Unit. Despite constant surveillance and the regular disappearance of inmates making their 'final donation', Dorrit and her new friends eat well, sleep well, keep fit, play hard and even make love, their fears deadened by the luxury of their surroundings, their new-found companionship, the atmosphere of calm, their freedom from financial worries. Is it possible that against all the odds, real happiness can exist in the Unit? When something truly extraordinary happens to Dorrit, highlighting the grotesque reality of her situation, she faces the hardest decision of her life. Will she exchange one nightmare for another?, Book Description One day in early spring, Dorrit Weger is checked into the Second Reserve Bank Unit for biological material. She is promised a nicely furnished apartment inside the Unit, where she will make new friends, enjoy the state of the art recreation facilities, and live the few remaining days of her life in comfort with people who are just like her. Here, women over the age of fifty and men over sixty–single, childless, and without jobs in progressive industries–are sequestered for their final few years; they are considered outsiders. In the Unit they are expected to contribute themselves for drug and psychological testing, and ultimately donate their organs, little by little, until the final donation. Despite the ruthless nature of this practice, the ethos of this near-future society and the Unit is to take care of others, and Dorrit finds herself living under very pleasant conditions: well-housed, well-fed, and well-attended. She is resigned to her fate and discovers her days there to be rather consoling and peaceful. But when she meets a man inside the Unit and falls in love, the extraordinary becomes a reality and life suddenly turns unbearable. Dorrit is faced with compliance or escape, and…well, then what? The Unit is a gripping exploration of a society in the throes of an experiment, in which the “dispensable” ones are convinced under gentle coercion of the importance of sacrificing for the “necessary” ones. Ninni Holmqvist has created a debut novel of humor, sorrow, and rage about love, the close bonds of friendship, and about a cynical, utilitarian way of thinking disguised as care. A Q&A with Ninni Holmqvist Question: The Unit is not set in the present, but its echoes of present-day issues are clear and ominous. Describe the world of The Unit. Ninni Holmqvist: The Unit is a dystopia set in a near future. It is about people who don’t have any children or anyone else who loves them and need them, and who aren’t useful to the society in any other way either. These people are called “dispensable,” and they are picked up at their homes at a certain age (women at 50, men at 60) and taken to special units (“reservbanksenhet” in Swedish) for biological material, where they are supposed to serve the society through participating in various tests (like animal testing but made on people), but also, eventually, by donating organs to those of the society’s needed citizens—the ones who produce and raise children, the loved ones, the ones who contribute to the economic growth—who are afflicted with severe illnesses and need organs from healthy bodies to survive. Dorrit Weger, who just turned 50, is one of those dispensable. She is a writer, childless, quite poor, and lives alone with her dog. The story begins with her arrival at the unit, an establishment/institution she immediately finds a lot more comfortable and human and loving and beautiful than she ever could have expected. Question: The Unit raises a number of complex—and sometimes disturbing—ethical questions. Do you see the novel as having a central moral theme? Ninni Holmqvist: The book is above all written as a critique of society and the way political leaders today see everything in figures and numbers. But my aim was also to raise questions like: What is freedom? What is human dignity? How do we humans value our selves and each other? But The Unit is also very much a story about love (Dorrit meets the love of her life at the unit, a man called Johannes, and she also, miraculously, gets pregnant) and friendship and loyalty. Question: Who did you write The Unit for? Did you have someone—personally, or in society—that you intended the story for? Ninni Holmqvist: My intention was that it is for everyone. But I guess it might especially appeal to middle-aged single people, childless ones. But also people who are in or are close to other categories of “dispensable” people: disabled people for instance, long time unemployed persons, culture workers. And people who are critical o, 10129, Contemporary, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10132, Literary, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10491, Psychological Thrillers, 10484, Thrillers & Suspense, 18, Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 7538392011, Crime, 9536063011, Heist, 9536064011, Kidnapping, 9536065011, Murder, 9536066011, Organized Crime, 9536067011, Serial Killers, 9536068011, Vigilante Justice, 10484, Thrillers & Suspense, 18, Mystery, Thriller & Suspense, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16272, Science Fiction, 16273, Adventure, 9059886011, Alien Invasion, 16275, Alternate History, 16277, Anthologies, 10387335011, Colonization, 9059887011, Cyberpunk, 3559311011, Dystopian, 10387340011, Exploration, 10387336011, First Contact, 10387337011, Galactic Empire, 9059888011, Genetic Engineering, 16286, Hard Science Fiction, 16288, History & Criticism, 7538385011, Military, 7538386011, Post-Apocalyptic, 16308, Short Stories, 271585011, Space Opera, 3559312011, Steampunk, 7587452011, Time Travel, 25, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
