Luminarium - Best Books of 2011

Luminarium has been selected as one of the best novels of 2011 by the Kansas City Star:"Shakar brings a host of profound concerns to this inventive, metaphysical, funny and caring novel set in post-9/11 New York City, ground zero for moral and spiritual paradoxes, in which one twin brother is in a coma and the other is desperately seeking healing and direction as the virtual world they worked so hard to create is commandeered by the 'military-entertainment complex.'"
