Speculative Fiction Book Discussion

Secret identities form the axis of Wilson’s fast-paced, imaginative first novel, “Alif the Unseen” — a book that defies easy categorization. Is it literary fiction? A fantasy novel?  A dystopian techno-thriller?  An exemplar of Islamic mysticism, with ties to the work of the Sufi poets? Wilson seems to delight in establishing, then confounding, any expectations readers may have.

Multiple copies of this title are available in the library.

Pam Bedore, Associate Professor of English at UConn, will lead this discussion series.
