A distortion of the novel: The Beach
Yellow smoke lifts on a trash-drenched bay.
A traveller discovers paradise closed down – guarded by a shark.
Eden is a retelling of Alex Garland’s novel. It might also be a retelling of its film adaptation of the same name. Massive Owl want to expose the fiction and the truth in Garland’s popular novel. This will be the second edition in the company’s Distortion Trilogy – a series of experimental adaptations. The Owls bring you a piece about Generation X, adaptations and a ruined nirvana.
This is Eden.
