Following the success of Parrot and Olivier in America comes another wonderfully rich tale with historical themes from the twice Booker-winner. Catherine Gehrig, conservator at a London museum, learns of the unexpected death of her colleague and lover of thirteen years. Only the museum's director knew of the affair, and sends Catherine to work on a special project away from prying eyes. An automaton, a man and a woman who can never meet, a secret love story, and the fate of the world are all brought to life in this hauntingly moving novel from one of the finest writers of our time.

Another great novel from Carey
Let's cry tears for this Chemistry
No. I didn't like the way it was read and I didn't like the story at all. It was so boring.
Write for real people not foppish English academics
I am very reluctant to try them again.
It was a complete waste of money. I didn't finish it because it bored me and was all over the place.
