Product description

Product Description

How long do you want to live?

Alexa Denisovitch, a refugee from Kosovo during the 1999 war, is just seventeen when she is accepted by GenGineer Laboratories as a Tester for Longeva, a revolutionary additive that may significantly extend her longevity.

But becoming a Tester has unintended consequences and Longeva causes devastating unforeseen side effects.

Confronting environmental, political, and personal perils of the future, Alexa must grapple with the tough questions of life, love, and death.

"One Day in the Life of Alexa, by Lisa Mason (Bast Books, 2017) incorporates lively prose, past/present time jumps, and the consequences of longevity technology . . . It’s a quick, absorbing read with an appealing narrator and subtly powerful emotional rhythms."
--Goodreads

Lisa Mason has published nine novels including Summer of Love (a Philip K. Dick Award Finalist and San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book), The Gilded Age (a New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book), Strange Ladies: 7 Stories (a collection of previously published short fiction), and two dozen stories and novellas in magazines and anthologies worldwide. Her Omni story, “Tomorrow’s Child,” sold outright as a feature film to Universal Studios.

Praise for Summer of Love:
"Clear-sighted, witty, and wise." Locus Magazine

"Captures the moment perfectly and gives a tantalizing glimpse of its wonderful and terrible consequences." The San Francisco Chronicle

"Rollicking ... Dazzling. Mason's characters are just as endearing as her world." Locus Magazine

"A winning mixture of intelligence and passion." The New York Times Book Review
