Mick Rose runs a sometimes illegal courier service to the genetics industry. His lover Isobel is dissatisfied - she wants to be more beautiful. When she takes a new DNA-based genetic treatment, Mick finds out more than he wants to know about the goods his firm has been carrying.
'Imagine Reservoir Dogs scripted by Alan Bennett and you will have some idea of the flavour . . . superbly realized.' The Times 'Remarkable . . . Signs of Life is a glorious hybrid, mixing elements of science fiction and literary art into a striking fable that reads like little else currently on bookshop shelves. His dystopian view of a Britain running riot with unregulated biotechnology is truly frightening.' Sunday Times 'Brilliantly sustained. If you've never discovered M. John Harrison, now's your chance. Far too long the most underrated writer of his generation, he's one of the best we've got.' Time Out 'Like all good literature, Harrison's stories are worth reading again and again; the more you read, the more you understand.' Iain Banks
