“Regarding Ducks and Universes” and Douglas Adams

An early spring thaw is in store for those of us who grieved the passing of Douglas Adams. Here comes his female reincarnation, to of all places, the Loft in Minneapolis of Universe A!

The Loft Presents: Neve Maslakovic
Thursday, March 17, 7:00pm – The Loft Literary Center at Open Book,
1011 Washington Avenue S, Minneapolis

Neve Maslakovic reads from her new book “Regarding Ducks and
Universes”. Felix Sayers wasn’t born when the Universe was split into
two dual realities: Universe A and Universe B. And so, for most of his
life in San Francisco A, he has had no reason to wonder about San
Francisco B and the other reality that’s just a portal trip away. He’s
content with his day job writing culinary instruction books and
nighttime dream of penning an Agatha Christie-style mystery. But then,
Felix discovers he’s a little older than he thought and that he has an
“alter” — his double, running around in Universe B — and everything
changes.

“An imaginative take on the theories of nature versus nurture…bright
and amusing.” — Publisher’s Weekly

“Regarding Ducks and Universes” is Neve Maslakovic’s first novel.
Before that, she was crafting technical papers and finishing her PhD
in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University’s STARLab (Space,
Telecommunications and Radioscience Laboratory). She spent her early
years speaking Serbian in the city of Belgrade, in what was then
communist Yugoslavia. After stops along the way in London, New York,
and the San Francisco Bay Area, she has settled in the Twin Cities.
