1 New Deal (Haig)

Francesca Haig‘s The Fire Sermon to HarperCollins Voyager UK. (US auction planned for July 10.) Pre-emptive film rights to DreamWorks (Carla Hacken attached to produce). First of a trilogy. 400 years after a nuclear apocalypse, society is left without technology and all humans are twins. One of each pair is physically perfect, and they are called Alphas, while the other, the Omega, bears some mutation. The apartheid society forces the mutated twins to settlements, even though when one twin dies, so does the other. This is the relationship between a brother and sister twin, and what happens when he becomes a leader in the repressed society. The author was born in Hobart, but attended university in Melbourne.
