9780006480273: Glimmering

From the author of the breakout bestseller Waking the Moon, comes this stunning millennial thriller

It is 1999. The Last Days some say; the First, say others. The climate has altered irrevocably, the cities have imploded into vicious shards and the stars haven't been seen for months. The sky is a glimmering wash of reds and greens and golds, the result of global warming...it is thought.

A breathtaking novel that weaves into one faultless tapestry the shimmering strands of science fiction and fantasy, Glimmering explores the violent margins and the soft decadent center of a world giving birth to a new millennium. Hand has captured in one powerful narrative both the unspoken dreams and the unspeakable nightmares of a generation. Glimmering will open more than eyes. It will open hearts to the wonder and terror of the world to come.

Review:

In 1999 the world has gone to hell: global warming, AIDS, urban decay, environmental disasters, and, above it all, the Glimmering. The Glimmering is an accident of modern society, a phenomenon that is destroying the ozone layer and killing the earth. In these last days, Jack Finnegan, suffering from AIDS, has come home to his family's decaying Manhattan mansion to die. He will meet Trip Marlowe, a rock star hooked on the hallucinogenic IZE, and unknowingly play out a bizarre drama scripted by his former lover, the "sociocultural pathologist" Leonard Thrope. You won't be able to put down this engrossing tale.

About the Author:
