At 11:04 a.m. on January 21, 2017, Jordan walks into his mother’s bedroom, concerned that she hasn’t yet wakened. As his eyes adjust to the half-light, he finds her lying motionless in bed with her mouth agape. In that instant he can’t tell whether she is asleep or dead, and finds himself plunging headlong into the dark heart of human consciousness, where uncertain revelation lies in wait. From androids to cannibals to sex clubs, an unforgettable personal odyssey emerges, populated by a cast of sublime outsiders searching for the ever-elusive nature of self.
Part ontological mystery, part millennial saga, Liminal is a riotous and moving portrait of a young man in uncertain times, a generation caught in suspended animation, and a son’s enduring love for his mother.
