The Prospect of My Arrival
In Chicagoan Dwight Okita’s long-awaited first novel, a human embryo is
allowed to preview the world before deciding to be born. To help him make up his mind,
he will be able to interact with the best and worst the world has to offer. A finalist for
Amazon.com’s 2008 Breakthrough Novel Awards, Okita’s quirky cautionary tale is
served up with equal helpings of whimsy and dread, with just a dash of hope.
