In an intelligent, conversational tone, narrator Steven Jay Cohen leads listeners into an alternate world resembling our own--except that Al Gore wins the presidency in 2000 and medical marvels not only save lives but can, through bioregeneration, bring the dead back to life. A down-on-his-luck historian comes to question his personal and political choices when he becomes a confidant of a powerful lawyer who dies and then returns, upending both men's families and fortunes. Cohen's comfortable delivery makes the most devastating philosophical questions relating to grief, legacy, truth, and history itself--what if the South had won the Civil War?--seem intimate and accessible as the historian finds that second chances may make the most profound ripples in time. Powerful, thoughtful speculative listening. B.P. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2023]
