'Zero Zone'


If you liked Emily St. John Mandel's "Station Eleven," (I loved it) you'll enjoy this novel.

What led me to it was reading a review which noted that the story was set in Los Angeles in the 1970s, a place and decade which features prominently in my memory.

Strange and wondrous things happened to me during those ten years.

But I digress.

"Zero Zone" centers on an artist who creates a piece out in the California desert whose existence triggers a chain of events leading to a residue of ambiguity like that surrounding the Kennedy assassination.

The story shifts back and forth in time around the center, in a way I found difficult to follow until I invoked PayCloseAttention©®, after which everything made perfect sense.
