In this powerful, richly spare, and 2015 Pulitzer Prize-nominated new drama about aging, memory, and artificial intelligence, Jordan Harrison explores the mysteries of human identity and the limits — if any — of what technology can replace.
Set in the not-too-distant future, Marjorie is starting to lose her memories to dementia. Her daughter and son-in-law employ the assistance of an A.I. program to help her cope and keep her out of a home.
“Jordan Harrison’s elegant, thoughtful, and quietly unsettling drama . . . keeps developing in your head, like a photographic negative, long after you have seen it. At some point, you realize that it’s been landing skillfully targeted punch after punch, right where it hurts.” —NY Times
