In a time and place where people are born with one hundred crystals that are depleted through accident and illness and die when their count reaches zero, Remy sets out to increase her sick mother's crystal count.
"A grounded epiphany of the highest order, revealing the stark and majestic grace that is present within the loss each living thing must endure. Page after page, Jones's exquisitely styled prose drugs the ear like otherworldly music--this pyretic, hallucinatory novel stings with beauty at every turn."--Alissa Nutting
"While so many other books and movies these days seem to be afraid of their own fantasies, Shane Jones goes for the throat."--"Vice," on "Daniel Fights a Hurricane"
Remy is a young girl who lives in a town that believes in crystal count: that you are born with one-hundred crystals inside and throughout your life, through accidents and illness, your count is depleted until you reach zero.
As a city encroaches daily on the village, threatening their antiquated life, and the Earth grows warmer, Remy sets out to accomplish something no one else has: to increase her sick mother's crystal count.
An allegory, fable, touching family saga, and poetic sci-fi adventure, Shane Jones underlines his reputation as an inspired and unique visionary.
Shane Jones's (b. 1980) first novel, "Light Boxes," was originally published by Publishing Genius Press in a print run of five hundred copies in 2009. The novel was reviewed widely, the film optioned by Spike Jonze, and the book was reprinted by Penguin. "Light Boxes" has been translated in eight languages and was named an NPR best book of the year. Jones is also the author of the novels "Daniel Fights a Hurricane" and "The Failure Six."
