"Harsh and ingenious! High Rise is an intense and vivid bestiary, which lingers unsettlingly in the mind." Ã¢ÂÂMartin Amis, New StatesmanWhen a class war erupts inside a luxurious apartment block, modern elevators become violent battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into marauding attacks on Ã¢ÂÂenemyÃ¢ÂÂ floors. In this visionary tale, human society slips into violent reverse as once-peaceful residents, driven by primal urges, re-create a world ruled by the laws of the jungle.
About: The wealthy inhabitants of a luxurious, well-designed apartment complex become engaged in hostilities that begin in the dropping of debris onto lower balconies and climax in drunken, marauding attacks by rival floor tribes
