Review of A Computer

A Computer is about the way violence
lurks just beneath the surface
of our day-to-day lives. It is never

explained why or how A Computer
can persevere without aging
and change from a he into a she,

instilling itself with a subtle sense
of deception that can be somewhat
chilling. Awkard as the mix might

sound, A Computer ends up musing
perceptively on the American
dream of wanderlust and its

unintended consequences. It also
touches on some of the subtler
points of attraction: when we fall

for A Computer, how do we know
how much of response is
cerebral and how much is erotic?
