Product description


A New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice
LONGLISTED 2014 – International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award

 “This thought-provoking read interlinks raw human passion with complicated puzzling about human ingenuity.... The first page is arresting and shocking and it goes on that way.... Carey’s world is always interesting and thought-provoking.”
—A.S. Byatt, Financial Times
“A heart-rending meditation on grief, love and time.”
The Globe and Mail
“Thrilling…. Such a gifted writer is always worth attending to.”
The New York Times Book Review
“A powerful novel on the frailty of the human body and the emotional life we imbue in machines.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Carey’s exceptional storytelling talents are all on prominent display here.”
The Guardian
