Brilliant A startling and profound new drama. Jesse Green, New York magazine

Through deeply drawn charactersboth real and in the form of artificial intelligence companions, or Primes Harrison burrows into troubling questions of the digital age: What would we remember, and what would we forget, given the power of authorship? Will we be any less human, once computers know us better than ourselves?
