Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. Translated from the Norweigian by James Anderson. In 1833 a young Englishman known as Don Carlos finds himself in Buenos Aires. He meets a casual laborer, Giovanni Graciani, from Italy. These two short penetrating novels recount Giovanni's abandonment of faith, the political upheavals and the bloody events of Argentine history, and his encounter with Don Carlos - who in reality is Charles Robert Darwin, on a voyage that will change forever the way man perceives his world. The Italian struggles with the fact that Darwin is both highly religious and on the verge of establishing a whole new world of scientificism. Together these works reveal a philosophical and almost metaphysical battle between scientific logic and blind faith. Acclaimed in many countries, "a rich intellectual adventure" - Kirkus Reviews.

Synopsis:

Two related novels by the contemporary Norwegian author.

Synopsis:

These two novels tell the story of Charles Darwin as a young man. A crewmember on the HMS Beagle, the vessel that underwent a worldwide expedition from 1831 to 1836, Darwin discovers the material which enabled him to write The Origin of Species. As opposed to the rational Darwin, Giovanni is a skeptic who has abandoned his Catholic beliefs, but as the story progresses Giovanni becomes more and more rational, while Don Carlos finds himself drawn to the irrational.
