When Chicagoan Russell Stone finds himself teaching a Creative Nonfiction class, he encounters a young Algerian woman with a disturbingly luminous presence. Her blissful exuberance both entrances and puzzles the melancholic Russell. How can this refugee from perpetual terror be so happy? Thassa's joyful personality comes to the attention of the notorious geneticist and advocate for genomic enhancement Thomas Kurton, whose research leads him to announce the genotype for happiness. Thassa's congenital optimism is soon severly tested. Devoured by the public as a living prophecy, her genetic secret will transform both Russell and Kurton, as well as the country at large. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
