In TURN ON, TUNE OUT, former San Francisco journalist Cynthia Adina Kirkwood writes a cautionary tale in which turning on the computer threatens to tune out reality and creativity.


In this award-winning, futuristic novel, an avant-garde composer from Britain turns outlaw in Los Angeles. She flouts a California law which dulls people's minds.


Angelica Morgan moves to L.A. in search of like-minded artists. She finds them and also, unexpectedly, love.


Her neighbor, Rosetta, an outspoken painter, cautions the musician about the law that requires four daily hours of computer screen-watching.


Angelica dismisses the warning.
