Xen: The Zen of the Other

Xen: The Zen of the Other

In a world devoid of rites of passage, Ezra Buckley finds himself confronted with the very real prospect of having a life-changing, Liminal experience in the woods of Big Sur. Will he survive it? Is it even real?

Xen is a work that confronts the questions of identity, modernity, life, the other, and the place for rites of passage in the modern world. Xen is a work of deindustrial magical realism.
