AVP 07: Andromeda Romano Lax

49 Writers co-founder and author Andromeda Romano Lax has published her fourth novel, Plum Rains.

Andromeda lives for a while in the places where her novels are set, for this one in Japan and Taiwan. The book takes place a decade from now and takes on several issues, including robots, immigration, privilege, and human connection. The Paris Review lauds it for, “engineering a world that is a character in itself, impossibly complex and daunting in its believability.” When Andromeda began her career two decades ago, she was a non-fiction writer of well-researched columns and articles. It was the global jolt of 911 that turned her to fiction.
