Críticas:

"There is no contemporary American writer quite like Richard Powers... It is rare to find a novel as intellectually and emotionally engaging as this" ( Guardian)

"Formidable...rewarding" ( Sunday Times)

"An epic novel of modern America that weaves ideas of race, music and science into a mysterious but satisfying tapestry... Endlessly fascinating" ( Independent)

"I cannot think of any novel other than Thomas Mann's Dr Faustus that enters so fully into the musical mind" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"A serious work, never less than considered and thought-provoking" ( Daily Telegraph)

Reseña del editor:

Jonah, Joseph and Ruth are the children of mixed-race parents determined to protect them from the grinding effects of race. Hothouse children, they are all musically talented, but they cannot be protected from the world for long. Jonah becomes a successful young tenor, but the world of opera can only accept him as a 'brilliant Negro singer'; Joseph, our narrator, becomes a pianist and devotes his talents to the service of his brother's; Ruth turns her back on classical music ('white music') and disappears, on the run with her black husband under suspicion of being a Black Panther.

Powers brilliantly and devastatingly delineates the tragedy of race in America, as it unfolds from the Civil Rights movement to Rodney King and Louis Farrakhan, through the lives and choices of one family, caught on the cusp of identities.
