Pseudonia, a small European principality tucked away in the Alps, is just such a country, the inhabitants of which enjoy a standard of living and a per capita income that puts Saudi Arabia to shame. Tom and Jenny Bradford, American expats, have found the house of their dreams in the Alpine uplands of Pseudonia. The price: half a million dollars (which neither can afford- he is an unread academic biographer, and she fancies herself a painter), or… five thousand dollars, plus sim. If they agree to simulate, i.e. exchange their identities with the owners of the house for a mere six months, and avoid being caught in their lie by poursuivants, who stand to get wealthy themselves by uncovering simulators, theyll be set up for life. Or will they? Charles S. Kraszewskis comedy (or tragedy) Pseudonia explores the value and integrity of our most unique possession: our identities, and the risks we run when, of our own volition and for whatever reason, we allow that integrity to be compromised.
