SciFi Club – “This Perfect Day” by Ira Levin

Ira Levin�s �This Perfect Day� is set in a seemingly perfect global society. Uniformity is the defining feature. There is only one language and all ethnic groups have been eugenically merged into one race called �The Family.� The world is ruled by a central computer called UniComp that has been programmed to keep every single human in check. People are continually drugged by means of regular injections so that they can never realize their potential as human beings, but will remain satisfied and cooperative. They are told where to live, when to eat, whom to marry, when to reproduce. Even the basic facts of nature are subject to the UniComp's will�men do not grow facial hair, women do not develop breasts, and it only rains at night. The library�s SciFi and Fantasy Group meets onthe last Wednesday of each month to discuss a book or screen a movie with a science fiction or fantasy theme.
