Dina Meyer wants to change the world. She started out in the Seventies as a crusading independent filmmaker, but the 21st century finds her serving as press secretary for a governor who checked his principles at the door to the state capitol. Fed up, she decides the only way to awaken people now is to blow their minds.
Hooking up with her old boyfriend, designer drug maker Nick Emerson, Dina concocts Clarity, a drug that makes people see through lies and distortions. “C” spreads like a benevolent virus through clubs, activist networks, even the highest reaches of government. As people begin to wake up, the authorities try to crack down. But how can they outlaw awareness? What astonishing things happen when citizens begin to think for themselves?
“If you’re looking for an antidote to Bush’s America, read Clarity. “I so loved living briefly in the “clarified” America of this book that I felt a moment of real annoyance when I finished reading and had to re-enter the country we still must clarify. But what remained was greater hope and a recurring chuckle of enjoyment. When I want a reminder of what’s possible, I imagine jumping back inside the story and revisiting its people.”

“If only! “I couldn’t put it down and I can’t wait to see it in airports, supermarkets and movie theaters. Clarity is more than a fable, it’s a heartwarming political love story fusing ethics and hope. The book is an antidote to these dark days.”
