"Under the guise of an AI creative-writing program, Kalpanik S. takes us with him on his journey through time, space and shares his multiple identities: a technology whiz kid, an immigrant, a husband, a father of two lovely daughters, and simply a human being trying to understand his place in the world," said Will Curl, Ph.D., Lecturer in English at University of Wisconsin. "The details of his unique life are rendered beautifully, poetically."
