A hypnotic collection of speculative fiction about compassion, love and human resilience in the technological hyper-age, from Alexander Weinstein, author of Children of the New World.

Universal Love welcomes listeners to a near-future world where our everyday technologies have fundamentally altered the possibilities and limits of how we love one another. In these gripping stories, a young boy tries to understand what keeps his father tethered to the drowned city they call home. A daughter gets to know her dead mother's hologram better than she ever knew her living mother. And, at a time when unpleasant memories can be erased, a man undergoes electronic surgery to have his depression, and his past, forever removed. In an age when technology offers the easiest cures for loneliness, the characters within these stories must wrestle with what it means to stay human in an increasingly cybernetic future and how love can endure even the most alluring upgrades. In the vein of Weinstein’s critically-acclaimed first collection, Universal Love is a visionary audiobook, written with one foot in the real world and one stepping bravely into the future.

'Funny and terrifying ... Universal Love picks up where [Children of the New World] left off.'
Ann Arbor, Observer

'Weinstein made a big splash in SF with his debut collection and follows it up with nearly a dozen stories that are just as creepy and will fit right in if you're watching Black Mirror ... In dark times, we get entertainment that reflects the world we've made. Welcome home.'
Kirkus Reviews

''Troubling and compassionate ... Channeling Ray Bradbury with contemporary allegories, Weinstein will make readers think twice about their relationship to technology.'
Publishers Weekly

'Seductive ... Weinstein's stories whistle with a cockeyed, formidable intelligence, and he is not afraid to provoke ...'
New York Times

'A darkly comic look at how far people will go to hold on to the devices that are replacing human experience.'
Washington Post
