Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anderson's imaginative and highly intelligent exploration of . . . the ambiguous history of America's origins will leave readers impatient for the sequel. - The New York Times Book Review

Young Octavian is being raised by a group of rational philosophers known only by numbers - but it is only after he opens a forbidden door that learns the hideous nature of their experiments, and his own chilling role them.

Anderson's mesmerizing novel takes place at a time when Patriots battled to win liberty while African slaves were entreated to risk their lives for a freedom they would never claim. The first of two parts, this deeply provocative novel reimagines past as an eerie place that has startling resonance for readers today.
