Destiny Versus Choice

Rachel Heng and Natalia Sylvester

Questions of life, death, immortality, and the afterlife abound in Heng and Sylvester’s new novels, one more dystopian than the other and both channeling the writers’ curiosities around the mystery at the end of life. How much control do we actually have over our lives? And our afterlives? What cultural and political forces are at work in the decisions we make?
