Zero Degrees of Separation


Fiction | 

All Ages

This book is a narrative investigation of human, animal, and AI introspection upon the insubstantiality of self, organized around two central devices: the implantation of behavior-modifying artificial neural networks into living bodies, and a philosophical inquiry into the nature of love. The tonal palette of the novel mingles tender enchantment with piercing desolation.
