Ahhh.. 8's the great one.
SS8, Zooce, came from a simple question that emerged from Religious Studies: if Christ came again today, how would we recognize Him? Would we, in fact, recognize Him? And what would His fate be this time around?
A host of interesting variations came from that basic kernel of an idea, and Zooce was one of the most popular of those iterations. I tried to take the fish out of water as far as I could - in this case, all the way around the globe to Venice Beach, California, where the culture is as counter as I could think of, and just plonked my Zooce down there.
Oh, and of course, why not make her the Daughter this time?
