Brockmeier imagines a world of the afterlife and its relationship to the world of the living. He describes a remote Antarctic research center, a place called “the city” populated by our planet’s dead, a surreal place wher a giraffe’s spots might detach and hover over a street conversation. Said to have a number of subplots, well-drawn relationships and meditations on life and death as well as deadly viruses, the construction of new lives and dark meanderings among a plethora of dead folks. Wow. From the author of THE TRUTH ABOUT CELIA. #32695
