Summary
"We're so connected, we're disconnected." The art of storytelling--and its survival--is a fundamental theme in Patricia Mahon's new series of edgy novellas, cleverly weaving excerpts from timeless masters of fiction and thought within each volume. The juxtaposition of classic authors against contemporary muses cements the concept that storytelling is an art crucial to the preservation of the human epic: it is our narrative. In Volume One, The Island, a speech writer (Morgan) and a school teacher (Percy) lament the loss of human engagement and creativity due to the disconnect of the digital age. Joined by a Silicon Valley turncoat and techno-savant, the trio set out to create a global writing platform, an app that allows worldwide, real-time participation in a collective story. The concept goes viral but the irony lies in a virtual reality so strong, it takes the three on a journey of discovery, pitting fantasy against reality--this volume's destination is the first of many more to come
