Finalist for the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

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

With help from an intriguingly innovative technology in a future not far from our present, Marjorie examines her past, sometimes replacing her realities with idealized memories. Through deeply drawn characters--both 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?
