Il primo romanzo dell'autore rivelazione più premiato del nuovo secolo. Premio Hugo 2011. « Come già aveva fatto con Storia della tua vita, con questo romanzo Chiang dimostra di saper scrivere in modo altrettanto coinvolgente di idee scientifiche e di esseri umani. » Locus
Negli anni Cinquanta Alan Turing ipotizzava di poter far "crescere" un'intelligenza artificiale istruendola come se fosse un bambino: fornendole i migliori organi sensoriali per mettere la macchina in contatto col mondo e cominciando a insegnarle a parlare e a capire il linguaggio umano…
