Universal Love: Stories

Alexander Weinstein

A wonderfully warm and inventive collection from the award-winning and Pushcart Prize-nominated author of Children of the New World.

A boy and his father find music in a drowned city. A lonely twenty-something gets addicted to comfort porn. A man is given a choice to have his trauma surgically removed. A mourning daughter brings her dead mother back to life as a hologram—but the source material isn’t quite right.

Praise for Alexander Weinstein
andUniversal Love

‘Weinstein is a master of his craft.’

‘A darkly mesmerising, fearless, and exquisitely written work. Stunning, harrowing, and brilliantly imagined.’

‘These stories are equally unnerving and tender, and a reminder that what we ultimately long for is human connection.’

‘In the vein of George Saunders, Rick Bass and Alex Shakar, Weinstein writes with stirring particularity, unfailing sensitivity, and supercharged imagination, creating nuanced stories harbouring a molten core of astutely satirical inquiries.’

‘These are deeply imaginative and compelling stories, written with exquisite poise, that bring the speculative and uncanny very close to home. Weinstein is here to remind us that questions of technology, of the future of our world, are also, always, questions of human intimacy and human care.’
