“There’s nothing wrong with the people who are gay, or outspoken, or mentally unwell and all that. They were born that way. I checked with many doctors,” June’s grandfather used to say. When he retired from office, he took to gardening and June would often find him carefully misting his orchids at odd times of the day.
“Sometimes June, nature needs help. And we must be very helpful.”
This novella is set in a future Singapore. Leaders are bred from the best genes of previous leaders. Thinkers, bred from the best of the ones who went before. June is the Prime Minister of Singapore, the genetically modified clone of all past Prime Ministers, and she is faced with the opportunity to take her country to the next level. Will she do it?
