Unable to escape the long shadow of childhood trauma, Owen Black takes his sorrow into the woods, never to return. However, the trees know him and they have a different idea. They, too, have experienced abuse and they will not bear passive witness to his suffering. Instead, Owen is transported entirely out of his world and deposited in a deep, mysterious forest. Within this complex biological system dwells a vast arboreal mind, a mind linked to other forests across parallel worlds. The forest mind heals Owen’s traumatized soul and in exchange, recruits Owen to join a war. The target: humanity; the means: a biological weapon designed to alter the rapacious behavior of Owen’s species; the vector: Owen himself. Wright weaves an epic tale of transgression and redemption. He forges a transcendent mythology of symbiogenesis from existing concepts of ecology and evolution, creating a radical vision of humankind’s fate. Thrilling and thought-provoking, playful yet uncompromising, Rhizome is a mind-expanding journey into the possibilities of a forested multiverse.
