"In Barrett's hands, science is transformed from hard and known fact into malleable, strange, and thrilling fictional material."--Boston Globe

"Ranks with the best of the new wave of historical writing...Barrett courses back and forth over the history of science and the science of human relations in the nineteenth century, giving us the people behind the history--doctors, collectors, inventors, and women--a glory of passion, ambition, and love. This is just simply inspired writing." -- Douglas Glover
