’A gripping, slow-motion car crash. You can’t take your eyes off it’ Julian Baggini, Financial Times

Imagine you have survived an apocalypse. Civilization as you knew it is no more. What will life be like and how will you cope?

In 2006, Dylan Evans set out to answer these questions. He left his job in a high-tech robotics lab, moved to the Scottish Highlands and founded a community called The Utopia Experiment. There, together with an eclectic assortment of volunteers, he tried to live as if global society had collapsed. No modern technology. No creature comforts.

Within a year, Evans found himself detained in a psychiatric hospital, shattered and depressed, trying to figure out what had gone wrong. In The Utopia Experiment he tells his own extraordinary story, and in the process learns some hard lessons about himself and about life today.

’It radiates an intense intelligence and a candour that is never less than touching and, sometimes, downright heartrending’ Daily Mail

’It should probably be a mandatory handbook for any slightly nesh person fantasising about living off-grid’ Observer

’Excruciatingly honest and stranger than fiction . . . riveting’ New Zealand Herald

Dylan Evans is an academic, philosopher and journalist. He has written several popular science books and was once described in The Times as ‘the sort of polymath who makes you wonder what you’ve been doing with your brain.’ He was born in Bristol and now lives in Guatemala.
