Like Falling Sand
TITAN: A Novel
By Mado Nozaki (Translated by Evan Ward)
Mado Nozaki’s 2020’s TITAN: A Novel is a tale of epic-scale post-human psychotherapy. Evan Ward’s translation appeared in 2022.
A century and a half ago, Titan transformed the world. The great thinking mechanisms that constitute Titan manage all the onerous tasks needed to satisfy humanity’s every need. Necessary, burdensome human work has been relegated to the past. The species has (for the most part) become a race of hobbyists.
Too bad for the human race that their comfortable arrangement may be about to fall apart.
