Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungBuilding on his celebrated trilogy about the 18th-century Haitian uprisings, the author dramatically re-creates this turbulent era of reason and revolution, and the works of Antoine Lavoisier who so thoroughly exemplified its spirit.
PortraitMadison Smartt Bell is the author of twelve novels, his most recent being The Stone That the Builder Refused. He teaches at Goucher College and lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
Pressestimmen"Bell succeeds, not only in depicting the rigorousness of Lavoisier's method, but also in conveying a sense of his character, as revealed most affectingly by the quietly heroic composure with which he faced his own death." Los Angeles Times Book Review "A two-part thriller. The first describes Lavoisier's successful effort to win the race to explain how chemical processes work; the second, his pursuit by French revolutionaries." The New York Times Book Review"
