Pelekinesis: The Anarchist's Girlfriend by Susan I. Weinstein
Both mystic and blank canvas, The Anarchist's Girlfriend’s encounters reflect her society—art, politics, business, religion. Inspired by Dostoyevsky's divine “Idiot,” the AG is a clairvoyant Brooklyn Go-Go Girl who designs clothes of the future. Delightfully retro and powerfully prescient, the novel satirizes New York’s bohemian underground and the America of any time. As passion and hypocrisy erupt in a cloud of dust, character becomes destiny in this novel of ideas. The AG must save her imperiled city. And in the end, innocence is not lost but transcended.
