Product Details


“An expert juggling act . . . Idiosyncratic and engrossing throughout.” —Stephen Markley, New York Times Book Review

“Ingenious . . . Elliot Ackerman prefers challenging questions over convenient answers, leaving ample room for readers to engage in leaps of imagination as bold as the ones he’s undertaken . . . Blending alternative history with science fiction, Ackerman artfully explores several provocative issues that have become flash points in contemporary America.” Bookpage

“Thought-provoking . . . Visionary.” Publishers Weekly

“A novel of ideas in an age of opinions.” Kirkus Reviews
“A thoughtful and fascinating thought experiment, one that explores mortality, fate, and the malleability of historical memory.”Booklist
