In this mesmerizing novel, Ethan Canin, the New York Times
bestselling author of America America and other acclaimed works of
fiction, explores the nature of genius, jealousy, ambition, and love
in several generations of a gifted family. Milo Andret is born
with an unusual mind. A lonely child growing up in the woods of
northern Michigan in the 1950s, Milo gives little thought to his
talent, and not until his acceptance at U.C. Berkeley does he realize
the extent, and the risks, of his singular gifts.
California in the seventies is an initiation and a seduction,
opening Milo’s eyes to the allure of both ambition and indulgence.
The research he begins there will make him a legend; the woman, and
the rival, he meets there will haunt him always. For Milo’s
brilliance is inextricably linked to a dark side that ultimately
threatens to unravel his work, his son and daughter, and his life.
