EPISODE #147

AIRED: 08-09-2015

Fiction writer, Tori Alexander talks about her new book, LOCUS AMOENUS– a modern day Hamlet for the Post 9/11 age. In this beautifully nuanced dark comedy, a 9/11 widow and her son, Hamlet, have retreated from Brooklyn to the idyllic rural countryside upstate, where for nearly eight years they have run a sustainable farm. Hamlet, who is now eighteen, is beginning to suspect that something is rotten in the United States of America, where health, happiness, and freedom are traded for cheap Walmart goods, Paxil, endless war, standard curriculum, and environmental degradation. He becomes very depressed when, on the very day of the 8th anniversary of his father’s death, his mother marries a bureaucrat named Claudius, who works for NIST. The plot thickens when 9/11 truth investigator, Horatio, brings dust research to this modern Hamlet, proving the presence of Thermatic explosives manufactured at Livermore. This sets off a personal odyssey for the son, who is forced to confront the great forces hiding evidence behind his father’s death.

LOCUS AMOENUS has enjoyed high praise. In his review, Kevin Barrett of Veterans Today wrote, “Until now, the only 9/11-truth-themed novel of high literary quality was Thomas Pynchon’s Bleeding Edge. Locus Amoenus is the best fictional treatment of 9/11 yet. It’s hilarious, darkly ironic, playful, deeply moving.”

“The most stark divisions in America may spring not from political, ethnic or racial backgrounds but from informational sources…This is a theme explored in the darkly humorous novel, Locus Amoenus.” Woodstock Times

Tori takes 9/11 into a whole new genre. Hope you check it out!
