A wonderfully inventive, bighearted collection of stories from the author of Children of the New World A son and his father find music in a drowned city. A daughter gets to know her dead mother's hologram better than she ever knew her living mother. A man is given a choice to have his trauma surgically removed. A lonely twenty-something gets addicted to comfort porn. In these resonant, speculative stories about the human soul's resilience amid rapidly progressing technological advancement, Alexander Weinstein writes about a series of worlds like our own, but rife with the possibilties that our present timeline hasn't led us to--yet.In the vein of his critically acclaimed first collection, Children of the New World, and a kindred spirit to the work of George Saunders and Ted Chiang and the television show Black Mirror, Universal Love is a prescient, compassionate book, written with one foot in the real world and one stepping bravely, and hopefully, out into the future.
