I Am RadarBook - 2015
"The moment just before Radar Radmanovic is born, all of the hospital's electricity mysteriously fails. The delivery takes place in total darkness. Lights back on, the staff sees a healthy baby boy--with pitch-black skin--born to the stunned white parents. No one understands the uncanny electrical event or the unexpected skin color. 'A childbirth is an explosion, ' the ancient physician says by way of explanation. 'Some shrapnel is inevitable, isn't it?' A kaleidoscopic novel ... Reif Larsen's [book] begins with Radar's perplexing birth but rapidly explodes outward, carrying readers across the globe and throughout history, as well as to unknown regions where radio waves and subatomic particles dance to their own design"--Amazon.com.
