Rate this:
Francis Saxover and Diana Brackley, two scientists investigating a rare lichen, discover it has a remarkable property- it retards the aging process. Francis, realising the implications for the world of an ever-youthful, wealthy elite, wants to keep it secret, but Diana sees an opportunity to overturn the male status quo by using the lichen to inspire a feminist revolution.
As each scientist wrestles with the implications and practicalities of exploiting the discovery, the world comes ever closer to learning the truth . . .
Trouble With Lichen is a scintillating story of the power wielded by science in our lives and asks how much trust should we place in those we appoint to be its guardians?

A great little book about 2 scientists that discover a lichen that can prolong life, and what they each do with the knowledge.
