In Alex Shakar's latest novel, Luminarium, a man enters a strange scientific study about inducing spiritual experiences, falls hard for his experimenter, and starts getting email, somehow, from his comatose brother. Luminarium was the winner of the 2011 Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Fiction, named an Editor's Choice by the New York Times, a Notable Book by the Washington Post, and a best book of the year by Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and other periodicals. His first novel, The Savage Girl, was selected as a New York Times Notable Book and has been widely translated. His short story collection, City in Love, was the winner of the FC2 National Fiction Competition.
