A modern-day Alice in Wonderland melded with the satirical humor of Catch 22. A fantasy in which a girl named Kat inexplicability falls from the sky into a world populated by animals who behave like humans. The anomaly here, Kat quickly discovers, is herself.
Set against the backdrop of what may or may not be a young girl’s afterlife, this seductively-enchanting story poses these timeless yet timely questions: If heaven exists, a supposed realm of eternal bliss, how would it avoid becoming monotonous? Can harmony and controversy coexist? If so, what could God possibly have in mind? Maybe a world of light comedy, with some dark humor thrown in for good measure.
Heller’s iconic novel Catch 22 defined a concept which is now embodied in our lexicon: A situation in which a desired solution is impossible to attain because of a set of inherently illogical rules and conditions. Inspired by this notion, heretofore plays with a similar illogic: You can be anything you want to be once you know who you are. Paradoxically, by realizing this, you begin to lose your sense of self.
