Land of Plenty uses the novel format to answer the question: how can utopia be possible? Set among the utopian communes of New England, the novel follows residents of the town of Plenty as they try to understand, and then eliminate, their ties to the world outside of the commune. The novel relies on the philosophies of Frederick Jameson and other SF scholars in its portrayal of a radical break from previous discourses in order to achieve a new way of being.
