9780312934675: The Memory Of Whiteness

In 3229 A.D., human civilization is scattered among the planets, moons, and asteroids of the solar system. Billions of lives depend on the technology derived from the breakthroughs of the greatest physicist of the age, Arthur Holywelkin. But in the last years of his life, Holywelkin devoted himself to building a strange, beautiful, and complex musical instrument that he called The Orchestra.

Johannes Wright has earned the honor of becoming the Ninth Master of Holywelkin's Orchestra. Follow him on his Grand Tour of the Solar System, as he journeys down the gravity well toward the sun, impelled by a destiny he can scarcely understand, and is pursued by mysterious foes who will tell him anything except the reason for their enmity, in The Memory of Whiteness by Kim Stanley Robinson.

Review:
Arthur Holywelkin, a brilliant physicist, devoted the last years of his life to creating a strange, beautiful musical instrument called The Orchestra. Hundreds of years later, in a universe centered around music, Johannes Wright is chosen as the Ninth Master of Holywelkin's Orchestra. Wright must travel the solar system pursued by enemies in the name of a destiny he understands only imperfectly.

Paperback. Condition: Very Good. 351 p.; 22 cm. Light blue wrappers with blank spine. Uncorrected Bound Proofs. Front cover indicates that the book would be published as a hardcover in September 1985, distributed by St. Martin's Press. Kim Stanley Robinson is a prolific writer of science fiction, with most of his books having an ecological component, as well as exploring alternatives to capitalism. His works have been nominated for 29 awards, of which he was won the Hugo Award twice, the Nebula Award twice, a World Fantasy Award once, a John W. Campbell Memorial Award once, and the Locus Award six times. He was the guest of honor in 2010 at the 68th World Science Fiction Convention in Melbourne, Australia. Like his later Mars Trilogy, this book is set in a world in which humans have settled throughout the solar system. Unlike his other works, this has a strong emphasis on the role of the arts, in particular music, in human life. ISBN: 0-312-93467-X. In Very Good Condition: small scrape along top edge of front cover; some stain top and bottom cover edges; pages are clean and tight. Seller Inventory # 002963
