Read in August, 2011

Not unlike Point Omega, the focus of this work (partly) is time and identity. It also raises some very provocative ideas about evolution, faith and DNA. One of the characters is a beautiful autistic woman. It is a story told in 5 voices, and revolves around these five people being trapped in an airport lounge while a total collapse of civilization threatens them. Very worth the read for the provocative ideas, and some nifty dialogue. He is leaning more and more into McLuhan mode with this one. It was delivered as the prestigious CBC Massey lectures. I recommend it highly.
