This book sheds light on those things that people in power--government, religious leaders, corporations, the rich and well connected--would just as soon wish you didn't know. To them secrets are power. And they'll do whatever it takes to keep them that way -- suppressing the truth and covering up facts that might make the rest of us angry enough to challenge the powerful or at least to have a good laugh at their expense.
In the distant future, Verloc Nim wakes up in the middle of nowhere, remembering nothing of his former life. But when Verloc is handed his diary by a robot-ape called Churchill, he is able to revisit his past.
