A bracing homage to the many natures of genius and the inevitable progress of ideas, in a world that reveals its best truths to the uncommonly patient minds. Barbara Kingsolver, "The New York Times Book Review"
Raucously ingenious "Signature" is not just a historical novel that spans two centuries and many geographies. It s a 500-page novel of ideas I found unshackled joy on every page. -- "The Chicago Tribune"
A delightful book one of the best of the year Gilbert marries the technical, cultural and spiritual with a warm, frankly funny wit that adds richness to all three. All Things Considered, NPR
