Summary
Russell Stone is teaching creative nonfiction in Chicago when he meets a young Algerian woman with "a disturbingly luminous presence. Thassadit Amwar's blissful exuberance both entrances and puzzles the melancholic Russell." His curiosity about her happiness despite her refugee status leads a geneticist to research further and announce discovery of a genotype for happiness. This fantasy fiction asks us to consider both science and imagination as humankind rewrite[s] our own existence." -- Publisher description
