On a dying Earth in a not-so-distant future, Josiane and René are the first to enter a new virtual world where just about anything is possible... Part dystopian love story, part psychedelic meditation on human nature, "Alt-Life" takes the reader down a mind-bending rabbit hole of desire, loneliness, and self-discovery.

    Alt-Life is lettered using cursive script, giving all speech a celestial quality, even when they're talking about boredom and gangbangs. This is a book about an attempt to make a heaven out of hell.
