There may be no loss as devastating as losing one’s child. Who then could fault the Jacobsons, overwhelmed by anguish, for accepting the help of a scientific cabal promising to clone their son Joey? Though Joey’s promising second life will lead to love and a good job with the CIA, he remains unaware of the circumstances, and the deleterious consequences, of his existence. When tragedy strikes, Joey must come to terms with the mystery of his past and the uncertainty of his future.
A Life Twice Given, the captivating debut novel from David Daniel, is a masterwork of speculative fiction inspired by the author’s personal loss. Daniel delivers an immaculately crafted, genuinely human portrait of a future both idyllic and dystopic.
