With spellbinding prose and a unique sensitivity for the insecurities, desires and needs of the Millennial generation, Daniel Mark Harrison has written a novel like no other out there. The Millennial Reincarnations goes to places that neither satire, romance or thriller today dare venture, harking back to a period of mid-18th century and early post-modern literary experimentation, reminiscent of masters of prose such as James Joyce, Anne Cécile Desclos and Donatien Alphonse François.
Like the great voices that challenges the status quo in order to capture the subconscious zeitgeist of the era, in The Millennial Reincarnations Harrison paints a portrait of the areas of the human mind that are forbidden to novelists of the day. In doing so, he captures a deeply sensual and alarming innocence of mind, showing us most of all what it means to be Millennial, which he describes as "an entire generation at once emotionally detached and dependently wealthy."
Harrison explores in explicit fashion where our first ideas and personal fantasies have taken shape in this new virtual era, demonstrating in a uniquely lyrical context explicitly how these experiences have come to define our principles of love and hate, pleasure and pain, and loyalty and betrayal.
Critics have hailed the book "easily the best this year" (Huffington Post), "complex, rich, and engrossing all in one ... a unique five star read" (Mid West Book Review), "ambitious" (Il Figlio), and "required reading" (Jeffrey Robinson, #1 NYT Bestseller), lauding "Harrison's brash confidence in the privileged, fast-moving world he describes" (Kirkus) where "the female characters ... are Katniss-style strong" (Bustle). Since the publication of the first edition of The Millennial Reincarnations in mid-2015, this book has been universally recognized as an early cult classic for the Millennial epoch.
