Sharp and satirical, this dark comedy will appeal to fans of M.T. Anderson's groundbreaking dystopia, Feed. An unsettling story of consumerism gone mad, MARTians imagines a not-so-distant future where our lives are ruled by the purchases we make. Last girl Zoe Zindleman, numerical ID 009-99-9999, is starting work at AllMART, where "your smile is the AllMART welcome mat".
Her living arrangements are equally bleak: she can wait for her home to be foreclosed and stripped of anything valuable now that AnnaMom has moved away, or move to the Warren, an abandoned shopping centre, to live with the other left-behinds. With a handful of other disaffected, forgotten children, Zoe must find her place in a world that has consumed itself beyond redemption. She may be a last girl, but her name means "life", and Zoe isn't ready to disappear into the AllMART abyss. Zoe wants to live.
