Prisoner by Birth was OK, barely. It was a modern re-elling of the Count of Monte Cristo tale, but kind of plodding and with many characters that seemed hollow. Archer is not a great writer, but most of his books that I ahve read are good stories, he (usually) is a very good storyteller. I would recommend Kane and Able, or Not a Penny More, over Prisoner by Birth.
And Christopher Moore I love. A cross between Vonnegut and the Pratchett/Gaiman writing team.
Have you read any Stepheson before? If so you now what Im talking about - its back to more pure SF, but it still plenty of philosphical and historical meanderings along the way, it's just that the history is not of Earth. ;-)
If you have not read it already, I would suggest you try Under the skin by Michael Faber. A completely different dystopian universe, but many similarites in the way Faber tells his story, and in the quality of the writing.
