Two new pieces of short fiction from Monica Byrne, author of THE GIRL IN THE ROAD (Crown), have been released — one for reading and one for viewing.
Monica’s short story “Traumphysik” tells the story of a dreamy and spirited young physicist on an isolated Pacific atoll during World War II. The prestigious science-fiction website Tor.Com published the imaginative piece on June 29th, 2016.
And in an epic TED Talks performance, Monica inhabits the character of a 318-year-old hologram telling her story of love and loss in a science-fictional future. The innovative piece of performance fiction — currently viewed over half-million times! — was featured on the TED homepage on the date of its release in May 2016. The performance originally took place, and was filmed, in February 2016.
