Luminarium - Winner

Luminarium has been awarded the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Fiction:"Bold, ambitious, and dazzling with ideas and narrative energy, Luminarium is a novel that refuses to settle for contrivance as it goes after the hard truths of family life, technology, culture, and urban experience.  It is a work that demands and rewards a reader's full engagement.  Alex Shakar's many-chambered novel leaves us changed for good."  --2011 Fiction Judges
