Supervenience by Jonathan Martin Dixit
In 2036, a woman, her husband, and their cat hurtle towards Mars in a capsule the size of a mini-van to uncover what happened to the first settlers of the red planet.
Miriam is a human search engine. Martin’s billionaire mother sent them there. Fancy Cat is their interactive AI program who dreams of being more.
Politics, science, reality, and love are explored and tested in this half-billion-mile-long road trip.
The opening sentence says it all: “Tony, like all Scotsmen, yearned to be Chinese.”
