IN PARADISE, NOBODY CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM On her fiftieth birthday and now deemed economically worthless, Dorrit Weger is checked into the Second Reserve Bank Unit for biological material: a state-of-the-art facility where she will make new friends, enjoy generous recreational activities and live out her remaining days in comfort.
The price? Her body - harvested piece by piece for the 'necessary' ones, until the day comes when she must make her Final Donation.
But Dorrit finds her days at the Unit peaceful and consoling: she no longer feels like an outsider, a single woman in a world of married couples with children.
Until she unexpectedly falls in love - and everything changes.
