Product Description

The author's first novel since 'The Hours' resembles a three-movement concerto. Each of the story/movements features the same group of characters (a little boy; an older man; a young woman) and each tale is permeated by the spirit presence of Walt Whitman. Borrowing its title from Whitman's classic prose collection, 'Specimen Days' intersects New York City during three distinct eras: the Industrial Revolution; the Roaring '20s; and the 22nd century. Filtered through various styles and genres, the stories nevertheless retain a haunting continuity, ensnaring readers in inexplicable ways. 320p.

Editorial Reviews

Three characters seen in three different settings: the Industrial Revolution; the 21st century, as terrorists pockmark New York with bombs; and 150 years into the future. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
