From the Publisher"A grand scientific adventure and a tragic human love story … as idiosyncratic and mysterious in its own way as the first gene."
—The Philadelphia Inquirer
"An extraordinary novel, a work of history, science, pure prose, and pervasiv, stunning irony. "Simon Mawer writes beautifully, and the pleasure of his novel comes from the chance to watch him consider the mystery of the world, to report on the clarity with which nature speaks to us."
—The New York Times Book Review
"Furious, tener, and wittily erudite."
—The New Yorker
