Martin is an Australian journalist who covered uprising and overthrow of the Iranian theocracy, and has since "gone native" with a Iranian wife and child.
As tragedy strikes his multicultural family, Martin struggles to maintain his place in his adapted culture, and to provide for his child. Zendigi explores what it means to be human, and the lengths one will go to in order to provide for ones children.

realistic, human, but uneventful
the story had what I think is an accurate portrayal of how to upload a brain and the limitations of doing so. the characters feel real and the story is grounded. It is well written but not like Egan's earlier works. not nearly as grandiose
the deep thought and breadth of this story makes it an instant and powerful force in one's thinking about the (near) future.
