"[T]he first thing a reader notices about [Robson's] work is the exquisite precision and thoughtfulness of her writing....What Robson has constructed with LIVING NEXT DOOR TO THE GOD OF LOVE is nothing short of a modern day fairy tale."
From the Publisher
Editors Note A fifteen-year-old runaway, Francine searches for the meaning of love, embarking on a quest through the mysterious world of Sankhara, where she discovers a palace whose rooms are made of flowers, bone, and the hearts of heroes, as well as a boyfriend and a scientist seeking the lost light of the universe, and finds herself at the center of an unstoppable ancient conflict.
Annotation In a far-flung future world where genetic engineering is the norm and entire universes are constructed at the drop of a hat, a teenage runaway named Francine meets and falls in love with a god-like entity called Jalaeka, an extremely attractive and enigmatic being who is being relentlessly hunted by a powerful force called Unity. As the decidedly unusual romance develops, it begins to look like Jalaeka may be--or may have been---a god of love, among other things. Awhirl in shifting perspectives and dazzling cognitive leaps, LIVING NEXT DOOR TO THE GOD OF LOVE traverses a fantastically weird universe of technology, mythology, romance, and adventure.
Editors Note 2 A fifteen-year-old runaway, Francine searches for the meaning of love, embarking on a quest through the mysterious world of Sankhara, where she discovers a palace whose rooms are made of flowers, bone, and the hearts of heroes, as well as a boyfriend and a scientist seeking the lost light of the universe, and finds herself at the center of an unstoppable ancient conflict.
