Alex Shakar, author of Luminarium—this month’s Rumpus Book Club selection—is interviewed at Bomblog. Topics addressed include the author’s take on technology and science, spirituality and the sacred, as well as the concepts of entertainment, and the city that come through in the novel.
“As a storyteller, I find technology is a powerful lens for looking at our strengths and flaws. It amplifies our power, for good and ill alike, makes our decisions that much more consequential. You could say it’s our karma on steroids.”
