Product Description
 
A wonderfully warm and inventive collection from the award-winning and Pushcart Prize-nominated author of Children of the New World.

A boy and his father find music in a drowned city. A lonely twenty-something gets addicted to comfort porn. A man is given a choice to have his trauma surgically removed. A mourning daughter brings her dead mother back to life as a hologram-but the source material isn't quite right.

In these resonant, fantastic stories about the human thirst for connection amid rapid technological advancement, Alexander Weinstein conjures worlds like our own, but rife with the possibilities that our present timeline hasn't led us to-yet.A wonderfully warm and inventive collection from the award-winning and Pushcart Prize-nominated author of Children of the New World.
