From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Overstory, an enthralling story about desire, new love and the mysteries of science
The stunning new novel by Richard Powers, award-winning author of THE TIME OF OUR SINGING.
Richard Powers' break- out book, a huge ambitious novel that uses the experiences of a Jewish/black New York family over the last 60 years to tell the story of race in modern America. Fully comparable to Don DeLillo's Underworld and Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections.
"Superb ... Powers' seventh and perhaps greatest novel ... one of the most astonishing feats I've ever seen in literature' Washington Post
A powerful examination of the American dream and American business, reminiscent in its ambition, scope and achievement, of Don Delillo's Underworld and Graham Swift's Waterland.
