Junior leads a simple life. He loves his wife. He works on their farm. That is all he needs. But Junior has been chosen for a government space program that would take him away from his life for three years. He is told that this is good news, and that he has no choice in the matter. He shouldn’t worry – his wife and the farm will be taken care of in his absence by something that is not him, but thinks it is. As his departure aproaches, and surveillance begins in order to create his replacement, Junior’s sense of self begins to erode. What makes you You? Can it be measured or quantified? Who are you in the dark?

A mind-bending look at the nature of identity and humanity, this is an eerie slow burn of a book that lingers long after you turn the last page. – Skye
