Porter, Chana

Entry updated 29 October 2021. Tagged: Author.

(?   -    ) US teacher, playwright and author whose first novel The Seep (2020) interestingly places a clearly-told emotionally intense tale in which a trans woman discovers that her wife is effectively leaving her through the application of a new Technology that gives her rebirth as a child. The technology is one of the radical transformations enabled through the Invasion of an Alien entity or race or perhaps Hive Mind whose effect on Homo sapiens is a seep of empathy that binds everyone into a seemingly other-dimensional state of genuine intra-species Communication. The false scarcities of advanced capitalism dissolve like dreams. But complex side-effects and consequences stir this Utopian polity. [JC]
