DESCRIPTION

Amnesia, Peter Carey's first Australian novel since True History of the Kelly Gang,moves between the critical dates of 2010, 1943 and 1975 to ask themostvital question of the past seventy years: Has America taken usover? How did a young woman fromsuburban Melbourne become America'sPublic Enemy number one?WhenGaby Baillieux releases the Angel Worm into the computers ofAustralia's prison system, hundreds of asylum seekers walk free. Worse:an American corporation runs prison security, so the malware infectssome 5000 American places of incarceration. Doors spring open. Bothcountries' secrets threaten to pour out.Was this Americanintrusion a mistake, or had Gaby declared cyberwar on the US? FelixMoore – known to himself as 'Australia's last serving left-wingjournalist' – has no doubt. Her act was part of the covert conflictbetween Australia and America. That conflict dates back to the largelyforgotten Battle of Brisbane in 1943, forwards to the secret CIA stationnear Alice Springs, and has as its most outrageous act the coup of1975. Funded by his property-developer mate Woody Townes, Felix is goingto write Gaby's biography, to save her, and himself, and maybe hiscountry.But how to get Gaby to co-operate? What role does herfilm-star mother have to play? And what, after all, does Woody reallywant?Amnesia is Carey at his best: dark, funny,exhilarating. It is a novel that speaks powerfully about our history butmost urgently about our present.

You stumble through the narrow corridors as the distant cry is heard. Transient global amnesia (TGA) is a condition characterized by sudden onset of memory loss and confusion. During an episode of TGA, a person is not able to make new memories.

A game about immersion, discovery and living through a nightmare. An experience that will chill you to the core.
