Publisher Description

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Sea comes a novel that is at once a gloriously earthy romp and a wise look at the terrible, wonderful plight of being human.

“One of the great living masters of English-language prose. The Infinities is a dazzling example of that mastery.” —Los Angeles Times

On a languid midsummer’s day in the countryside, the Godley family gathers at the bedside of Adam, a renowned mathematician and their patriarch. But they are not alone in their vigil. Around them hovers a clan of mischievous immortals—Zeus, Pan, and Hermes among them—who begin to stir up trouble for the Godleys, to sometimes wildly unintended effect.

Author Sherry Jones ,

Breathtaking

This book is so beautiful both in its writing and in its exploration of life, love, and family, so empathetic and compassionate in its kind consideration of what it means to be truly human—a theme highlighted by juxtaposing an ordinary family with the gods who move among them, making mischief and wishing they could pierce the veil between their world and ours and have what we have. Haunting, eloquent, thought-provoking, inspiring.
