Set in an underground world of labyrinth corridors, bunkers, artificial lighting and Big Brother style oversight, the parents of a small ill boy battle their way to each other and to wholeness. Doctors seek to balance discovery with personal sacrifice and come up wanting more than science can offer. Nearly every page holds a complex melding of sci-fi biology, and super calculating systems of both biological and technological origin. And yet the text manages to be human, warm and intriguing, even compassionate.
The story is a truly creative look at the space between life and death and the question of wholeness and identity. Complex themes of love and loss are interwoven with strong maternal instincts and grace. All in all an excellent read, and the most creative tale I’ve seen in ages.
