Central Station by Lavie Tidhar

July 1, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We are reading the science fiction novel Central Station by Lavie Tidhar. Winner of the World Fantasy Award, this story takes place in Tel Aviv several centuries in the future where the most prominent feature in the skyline is no longer Shalom Meir Tower, but Central Station, an hourglass shaped spaceport reaching hundreds of stories into the sky. From the book jacket: “When (Israeli) Boris Aaron Chong reluctantly returns to Central Station from Mars, he finds (Tel Aviv in) utter chaos. His ex-lover is raising a child who taps into minds with the touch of a finger. Boris’s father has a multi-generational mind-plague. His space-faring cousin is infatuated with a cyborg robotnik. And an erratic data vampire has followed Boris home…” Mount Zion Library has a copy of the book. Questions, email Jonathan Eisenthal at johnnyirondale@gmail.com
