Product Details

Praise

“In these engaging “Expeditions,” Iagnemma brilliantly contrasts father and son, religion and science, exploration and exploitation. His energetic and thoughtful novel captures a culture, and a loving family, at a crucial moment of change."—Andrea Barrett, National Book Award-winning author of Ship Fever and Pulitzer Prize Fiction Finalist for Servants of the Map

“Iagnemma’s robust command of language creates an equilibrium between the [novel’s] two narratives, marrying the poetry of science with the promise of salvation.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Emotionally powerful and beautifully wrought…. One of this novel’s many and considerable strengths is the way in which the author refuses to stack the decks for or against either of his protagonists or their prospective ideas—the man of faith and the man of science. Each has his flaws and each his admirable strengths.”—Los Angeles Times

“A mature novel that fulfills [Iagnemma’s] astounding promise.”—Miami Herald

“Exhilarating … delivers from the first page.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“In these engaging Expeditions, Iagnemma brilliantly contrasts father and son, religion and science, exploration and exploitation. His energetic and thoughtful novel captures a culture, and a loving family, at a crucial moment of change.”—Andrea Barrett, National Book Award–winning author of Ship Fever and The Air We Breathe

“Flat-out wonderful…this book is a pleasure from cover to cover.”—Seattle Times
