Author: Richard Powers, read by David Pittu
The National Book Award-winning author of The Echo Maker proves yet again that "no writer of our time dreams on a grander scale or more knowingly captures the zeitgeist." (The Dallas Morning News).
What will happen to life when science identifies the genetic basis of happiness? Who will own the patent? Do we dare revise our own temperaments? Funny, fast, and magical, Generosity celebrates both science and the freed imagination. In his most exuberant book yet, Richard Powers asks us to consider the big questions facing humankind as we begin to rewrite our own existence.

“Narrator david Pittou's easy, thoughtful voice is a pleasure to listen to.” —SoundCommentary.com
“Part of this production's power is the performance by Pittou, slightly sardonic as Stone, French-accented as Thassa, comfortingly bland as Candace. It's a reading that doesn't get in the way of the prose, but offers its own enhancements to Powers' good writing.” —Providence Journal Bulletin
