Borne

by: Jeff VanderMeer

Publisher: MCD (2017)

$17.00

Staff Pick by comrade: QW

Set in the ruins of a city destroyed by the tech industry (sound familiar?), Borne is absurd, surreal, playful, and dark. Vandermeer uses vivid imagery to explores what it means to be a person, and the connections that are made in the midst of survival.
