From Joni Rodgers, author of Bald in the Land of Big Hair
New York Times bestselling author
"The premise is genius, and the beautiful writing totally delivered the goods."
From Midwest Book Review: Reviewer's Bookwatch
"From pre-birth to a twenty-year-old body, life can be quite a shock. The Prospect of My Arrival tells the story of Prospect, a human embryo transplanted to synthetic adult body, as he debates whether life is worth the pain of birth. Offering an unusual depiction of life and what our world says to those who may be an outsider, The Prospect of My Arrival is a unique novel with its own message, a read that is very much worth considering."
