The Discovery of Heaven, Harry Mulisch's magnum opus, is a rich mosaic of twentieth-century trauma in which many themesfriendship, loyalty, family, art, technology, religion, fate, good, and evilsuffuse a suspenseful and resplendent narrative.

The story begins with the meeting of Onno and Max, two complicated individuals whom fate has mysteriously and magically brought together. They share responsibility for the birth of a remarkable and radiant boy who embarks on a mandated quest that takes the reader all over Europe and to the land where all such quests begin and end. Abounding in philosophical, psychological and theological inquiries, yet laced with humor that is as infectious as it is willful, The Discovery of Heaven lingers in the mind long after it has been read. It not only tells an accessible story, but also convinces one that it just might be possible to bring order into the chaos of the world through a story.



Baker & Taylor
In a philosophical novel, two friends--a cynical, cerebral, blueblood obsessed by the future, and a hedonistic astronomer haunted by the past--are caught up in an angelic emissary's plan to clone one crucial person by the year 2000
