On a winter night on a remote road in Nebraska, Mark Schluter's truck turns over in a near fatal accident. His sister, Karin, returns reluctantly to their home town to look after him. But when he finally awakes from his coma, Mark believes that Karin - who looks, acts and sounds just like his sister - is really an identical imposter. Shattered by her brother's refusal to recognise her, Karin contacts Dr Gerald Weber, famous for his case studies describing the infinitely bizarre worlds of brain disorder. But what Weber discovers in Mark begins to undermine even his own sense of self. Meanwhile Mark, armed only with a note left by an anonymous witness, attempts to learn what happened on the night of his accident. The truth of that evening will change the lives of all three beyond recognition. Winner of the National Book Award for Fiction.

Among his most stunning yet: profound and heartbreaking" Financial Times "A psychological thriller, a flawed love story, a study of authenticity in emotions, a commentary on America's relations with itself and the world, humanity and ecollogy... undoubtedly magnificent" The Times "There's no other way to say it: Richard Powers is a genius" Time Out "An exhilarating narrative feat... He is a formiddable talent, and this is a lucid, fiercely entertaining novel" -- Sebastian Faulks Washington Post "Richard Powers is the most intellectually stimulating novelist at work in the English language today...[He writes] luminous prose. Sentence after sentence has the razor-sharp quality of aphorism about the weird wired world we have made" Sunday Times
