Inhalt
In each section of Michael Cunningham's bold novel we encounter the same group of characters: a young boy, a man, and a woman. »In the Machine« is a ghost story that takes place at the height of the industrial revolution as human beings confront the alienating realities of the new machine age. »The Children's Crusade,« set in the early twenty-first century, plays with the conventions of the noir thriller as it tracks the pursuit of a terrorist band that is detonating bombs, seemingly at random, around the city. The third part, »Like Beauty,« evokes a New York 150 years into the future, when the city is all but overwhelmed by refugees from the first inhabited planet to be contacted by the people of Earth. Presiding over each episode of this interrelated whole is the prophetic figure of the poet Walt Whitman, who promised his future readers, »It avails not, neither time or place . . . I am with you, and know how it is.« »Specimen Days« is a genre-bending, haunting, and transformative ode to life in our greatest city, and a meditation on the direction and meaning of America's destiny. It is a work of surpassing power and beauty by one of the most original and daring writers at work today.
