Item Details

"Shakar takes measure of our post-9/11 existential confusion in a technology-avid but sciencephobic, 'ever-complexifying world.' A radiantly imaginative social critic, Shakar is also a knowledgeable and intrepid explorer of metaphysical and neurological mysteries. With beguiling characters trapped in ludicrous and revelatory predicaments, this is a cosmic, incisively funny kaleidoscopic tale of loss, chaos, and yearning."--Booklist, Starred review
