Skin elegies : a novel

Olsen, Lance 1956- (author.).


Summary: "In a dystopian future, an American couple flee their increasingly authoritarian country by transferring to a quantum computer housed in North Africa. The novel's structure mimics a constellation of firing neurons--a sparking collage of many tiny narraticules flickering through the brain of one of the refugees as it is digitized. Those narraticules comprise nine larger stories intersecting with memorable moments in human time: the Fukushima disaster; the day the Internet was turned on; the final hours of the Battle of Berlin; John Lennon's murder; an assisted suicide in Switzerland; the Columbine massacre; a woman killed by a domestic abuser; a Syrian boy making his way to Berlin; and the Challenger disaster."--
