This copy has been SIGNED by Andrea Barrett on the title page! Winner of the 1996 National Book Award for Fiction. The elegant short fictions gathered here, often set against the backdrop of the nineteenth century, take their impulse from the world of science. Interweaving historical and fictional characters, they move between past and present as they negotiate the complex territory of ambition, failure, achievement, and shattered dreams. Dustjacket praise by Howard Norman who states "In these wonderfully original stories, the great explorers of mind and geography seem to enter the room, and history feels more immediate than the present."
