In a digital laboratory on the shores of Puget Sound, a band of virtualreality researchers rush to complete the Cavern, an empty white room that can become a jungle, a painting, or a vast Byzantine cathedral. In a wartorn Mediterranean city, a young man is held hostage in another empty white room, equipped only with his imagination and memory to navigate himself through his captivity. How these two disparate worlds come together make up the arc of Richard Powers' most boldly imagined and deeply humane novel to date.
