The Book of Adam: Autobiography of the First Human Clone

Adam’s intimate memoir of a world in which it becomes common to have your genetic twin born after your death. We see the bigotry of his youth, haunting dreams of his clone-father, and Adam’s search for his soul. A search shadowed by his fear of death and a century-old family drama in which, like the House of Atreus, the players seem fated to struggle with the sins of the father.Adam's intimate memoir draws us into a world in which it becomes common to have your genetic twin born after your death. We see this world through the first clone's unique perspective - the bigotry he faces as a youth, haunting dreams of the man from whom he was cloned, and Adam's inner search for his soul. It's a search that's shadowed by his fear of death, and by an multigenerational family drama in which, like the House of Atreus, the players seem fated to struggle with the sins of the father. 2010 Literary Award Finalist - Santa Fe Writers Project.
