Description

"Harmer takes cues from Margaret Atwood and Cormac McCarthy in this sharp debut, a cautionary tale of tech gone astray." --Toronto Life

In a time and place only slightly removed from now, PINA, the world's largest tech company, has introduced society to a new product called "Port." This irresistible space-time travel device is mysteriously powered by nostalgia and longing: Step inside a Port and find yourself transported any place your heart desires, real or imagined. Earth's population plummets when many who pass through its portal don't come back--either unwilling or unable to return.
            In The Amateurs, Liz Harmer has crafted a subtle, many-faceted debut novel about rapture and romance--and the strange, dark, powerful alchemy that happens when technology meets desire.
