"Robot is one of millions of androids on an Earth that recently saw the
extinction of human life. While Robot's mechanical brothers and sisters
seem happy, Robot finds himself lost and missing the only friend he
had, a human named Mike whose family accepted Robot as a piece of their
personal puzzle. Without both the mistakes and the capacity for
miracles that define human civilization, is civilization even worth
having? Explore this question in the hilarious yet heartbreaking
full-length debut of popular Chicago performer Mason Johnson. A Kurt
Vonnegut for the 21st century, his answers are simultaneously droll,
surprising and touching, and will make you rethink the limits of what a
storyteller can accomplish within science fiction."
