Description

A New York Times Notable Book of the YearA Salon.com Top Ten Book of the YearA Plain Dealer (Cleveland) Best Book of the YearA Slate Best Book of the YearRivka Galchen's Atmospheric Disturbances is a "witty, tender, and conceptually dazzling" (Booklist) novel about the mysterious nature of human relationships. When Dr. Leo Liebenstein's wife disappears, she leaves behind a single confounding clue: a woman who looks, talks, and behaves exactly like her. A simulatcrum. But Leo is not fooled, and he knows better than to trust his senses in matters of the heart. Certain that the real Rema is alive and in hiding, he embarks on a quixotic journey to reclaim her. With the help of his psychiatric patient Harvey—who believes himself to be a secret agent able to control the weather—his investigation leads him from the streets of New York City to the southernmost reaches of Patagonia, in search of the woman he loves.
