Welcome to the future: to a world where serenity is obligatory, social adaptation is desirable and transparency is complete. A world almost like ours.

Riva is a famous vaulter of high-rise buildings. She has a perfect body, functions perfectly as a person and is a perfectly transparent citizen with millions of fans. Then the inconceivable happens: she no longer turns up for training and refuses to leave her apartment. In her world, cameras are omnipresent, but she doesn’t know that she is being systematically observed: Hitomi, a young woman sitting in front of a screen in a nameless office tower, has to make Riva submissive again. But while trying to understand why Riva has thrown away her life, Hitomi’s own life threatens to go off the rails. If she doesn’t complete her mission, she will face an unthinkable fate – she will be expelled to the peripheries of the city, where people live in dirt, abandoned and no longer useful to society. What makes a perfectly functioning person human? The High-Rise Diver introduces the reader to a brilliant new world, which is as believable as it is chilling. Julia von Lucadou depicts this world with a mastery that places it among great stories set in our future.
