639 pages; Spine ends lightly bumped, a few faint splashes and one smudge on top page edges. Red remainder mark on bottom edge. Unclipped dust wrapper has very light edgewear and rubbing. A nice copy.; An intriguing and absorbing novel featuring four people in a story of science (DNA, genomes, computers), music (Bach), and love.

"The four protagonists are driven toward a provisional definition of life in all its chemical particulars - the secret shorthands, the compositional impulse of evolution, the links laid down between the cell itself and the complex organism that would try to understand it. Each must discover something of the unified diversity of the life molecule, its endless, mutating variations on a four-note theme." ; Recommended by Norma H.
