Se gli uomini avessero costruito una torre fino al cielo? Se un farmaco incrementasse enormemente l'intelligenza? Se i fondamenti della matematica fossero arbitrari e inconsistenti? Se l'esposizione a una scrittura aliena modificasse la nostra percezione del tempo? Se una scienza del dare nomi chiamasse alla vita la materia inanimata? Se la ricerca scientifica fosse monopolio di una casta di mutanti? Se angeli di salvezza e distruzione apparissero quotidianamente per le strade? Se ci fosse modo di rimanere indifferenti alla bellezza fisica? Ciascun racconto proietta il lettore in un mondo parallelo, descritto con implacabile rigore, partendo ogni volta da un assunto paradossale che rovescia le sue credenze sul simbolismo e la scrittura.

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…

With this subtly provocative solo recital, Ted Rosenthal merges three very different streams of piano history, putting his personal stamp on all of them. He pays homage to Bill Evans with "I Loves You Porgy," "Turn out the Stars," and "Waltz for Debby," playing the last in 5/4 but reverting to 4/4 only on his second solo chorus. The Bud Powell portion is more extensive, consisting of "Tempus Fugit," "Wail," "I'll Keep Loving You," "Celia," "Parisian Thoroughfare," and, in another 5/4 interpretation, the closing "Tea for Two." Last but not least, Rosenthal unveils his improvisational approach to Beethoven with the latter two movements of the "Pathetique" sonata, as well as the third movement of "Opus 109," which inspires a full nine minutes of spirited invention. In Rosenthal's hands all this music sounds as though it sprang from the same muse, and that's the sign of a skilled, imaginative artist.
