Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

Hailed by critics for its brilliance, A CASE OF CURIOSITIES begins In France, on the eve of the Revolution, when young man named Claude Page sets out to become the most ingenious and daring inventor of his time. In the courst of his career filled with violence and passion, Claude learns and creates many things. But his greatest device, a talking mechanical head, leads to an execution as tragic as that of Marie Antoinette, and far more bizarre.
"Captivating...marvelously re-creates an unfamiliar world [and] also successfully imitates the style of writing associated with novelists of the age."
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
