What's it about?
Here's the blurb:
Charlie's a funambulist, a tightrope walker, juggling head and heart walking between city and nature between a good path and a real path a known path and his own between being a hider and being a seeker between life and death living and dying one option and another another another.
The trick is, there's always more than two options...
That's where XK-1 comes in. Charlie's secret project.
A computer program that shows you what you're supposed to see but can't imagine.
A computer programmer at the biggest technology company in the world (one of the best machine learning engineers they've got) who wants to be a writer. Writing letters to his nephew Pauly. Tales from his past from his present from loving from longing from walking from wandering.
Step by step, creating his own story.
