Discover the Boundless Transformation of Life and Time

Welcome to the curated universe of Michael Cunningham's compelling novel, Specimen Days. Crafted with the elegance and power synonymous with this Pulitzer prize-winning author, this intricate work harmoniously blends literary fiction, historical narratives, and riveting science fiction. It's a bold exploration of New York City and the ultimate direction of America's destiny.

The novel masterfully weaves three riveting stories, each one echoing with the presence of characters familiar but uniquely adapted to their own era.

The first tale, "In the Machine," throws us back to the height of the industrial revolution, a chilling ghost story of humanity wrestling with the alien concepts of the new machine age.

Our journey continues with "The Children's Crusade," a thrilling narrative set in the 21st century, where a terrifying chain of seemingly random bombings plague a metropolis forcing us to examine the shadows of crisis and terror.

"Like Beauty" envisions New York 150 years into the future, a city teetering on the edge of collapse under the weight of refugees from Earth's first extraterrestrial contact.

Promising an immersive, transformative, and genre-blending literary experience, this imaginative narrative illuminates the transcendent interconnectedness of time, humanity, and destiny.
